Redfern and Hunter on International Arbitration (6th Edition)

Nigel Blackaby, Constantine Partasides, Alan Redfern, Martin Hunter

Abstract

This sixth edition of Redfern and Hunter on International Arbitration takes a fresh look at the law and practice of international arbitration in today’s world, against a background of constant change and evolution. Since the fifth edition of this book was published in 2009, there have been major changes in many national laws governing international arbitrations, as states seek to become ‘arbitration friendly’ by introducing new laws based on the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) Model Law. There have been changes too in some of the best-known rules of arbitration, including new UNCITRAL Rules of Arbitration (2010), new International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) Rules of Arbitration (2012), and, in October 2014, new Rules from the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA). There have also been important developments in the so-called soft law of international arbitration. In 2010, the International Bar Association (IBA) published a revised version of its Rules on the Taking of Evidence in International Arbitration, and followed this up in 2014 by publishing new and important Guidelines on Conflicts of Interest in International Arbitration. This sixth edition of Redfern and Hunter reviews the many changes that have taken, and are taking, place in the law and practice of international arbitration, and it places these changes in context as part of the constant evolution of a voluntary system of dispute resolution that is today recognised and established worldwide.
