About the Book

The various developments and changes in the field of arbitration, coupled with the large sums and important issues which are so often at stake in them, mean that a new book providing a comprehensive overview on the topic from an authoritative source is not merely very welcome: it is positively needed by professionals involved in arbitration and their clients. It is hard to think of an organisation better qualified to sponsor such a book than the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, with its enormous experience and authority in the field. It is also hard to conceive of a more impressive and well qualified group of contributors to such a book than the list of people who Julio César Betancourt and Jason A. Crook have included in this volume.
