Upholding the Agreement to Arbitrate

  • Neil Andrews
Part of the Ius Gentium: Comparative Perspectives on Law and Justice book series (IUSGENT, volume 54)


The two main ways in which arbitration agreements are upheld by the courts are: staying of court proceedings which are inconsistent with the commitment to arbitrate; the grant of anti-suit injunctions to stop a person from proceeding in a way which is similarly inconsistent with that commitment. Other topics include the grant of freezing relief by courts in support of arbitration proceedings or the judicial award of other interim orders to ‘hold the ring’ while arbitral proceedings are commenced.
