International commercial arbitration has emerged as the most preferred method for resolving cross-border business disputes in the globalised world we live in today. With the rise in global trade and investment flows, there is an increasing need for an effective and fair mechanism for resolving disputes that spans borders and legal systems.

Written by Mr Justice Harris and 36 DVC members, it examines the legal frameworks, procedures, and emerging issues shaping arbitration today.

This book comprises nineteen chapters, each serving a distinct purpose, helping readers to build a holistic understanding of international commercial arbitration. The book starts with an introduction to the fundamentals of international commercial arbitration, including the arbitration agreement, the jurisdiction of arbitral tribunals, and the relationship between arbitration and national court proceedings. It then delves into the constitution of arbitral tribunals, commencement of proceedings, pre-hearing procedures such as disclosure and interim measures, and hearing processes. The book also discusses multi-party and multi-contract proceedings in arbitration.

The book covers critical topics such as arbitral awards and the probable challenges they may face, followed by a detailed guide to the recognition and enforcement of these awards. The last two chapters focus on the application of arbitration within specialised areas: disputes involving shareholders, insolvency, and intellectual property.

This book is now available from Wolters Kluwer’s website.
