Besides the issue of arbitrators’ appointment rules, not much has been written about the topic of diversity in international arbitration and “the scholarly discourses have largely downplayed the possibility that this deficit may impact arbitration outcomes.” Going against the current of conventional thinking, Kidane’s book entitled The Culture of International Arbitration remedies this reality by questioning the “establishment” or epistemic community of international arbitration.
