Arbitration is a staple of international dispute resolution. Though the international community now has a plethora of courts and tribunals at its disposal, for numerous reasons international arbitration remains a central mechanism—perhaps even the central mechanism in third-party resolution of international commercial disputes. International Arbitration: Contemporary Issues and Innovations brings together some of the world’s most distinguished experts to examine important contemporary issues and trends in international arbitration. The volume offers a broad range of analysis beginning with current key procedural issues. Both Private and Public International Law are examined, including such topics as investor-state relations, arbitration in the law of the sea and human rights and investment arbitration.
John Norton Moore is the Walter L. Brown Professor of Law at the University of Virginia School of Law. He also directs the Centers for National Security Law and Oceans Law and Policy. He is a recognized expert on international law and has published extensively.
