For many years the importance of international commercial arbitration has grown steadily. This is indicated by the increasing number of disputes submitted to arbitration, by the importance of the average case as measured by the amount of money in dispute, and by the range of countries involved. International contracts may give rise to differences, and arbitration is frequently resorted to for their solution.
Since arbitration laws and practices differ from country to country and often undergo changes, the business world and practitioners need up-to-date information. The International Handbook on Commercial Arbitration provides such information in the form of National Reports. Annexed are the Arbitration Act of the country concerned and all other relevant legal provisions.
The International Handbook on Commercial Arbitration assists arbitrators, company lawyers, businesspeople, and legal advisers in assessing the national Arbitration Acts of all important trading countries.
The work covers virtually all countries involved in international business and, consequently, in international commercial arbitration. Each National Report is written by a local leading arbitration expert from the country concerned and contains comprehensive information on the arbitration law and practice of that country.
Future supplements containing new National Reports along with basic legal texts in English, updates of National Reports previously published, and amended law texts follow regularly.
