Abstract

International commercial arbitration has consolidated as a widespread dispute resolution mechanism for solving trans-border business conflicts around the world. This paper concentrates on central features that historically made arbitration very effective. In particular, it highlights the challenges of not losing sight of the cosmopolitan spirit that must guide parties and arbitrators, in light of recent developments.
