International Arbitration in Korea

Joongi Kim


This book provides an introduction to more than 140 arbitral cases and commentaries in Korea. It introduces the arbitration community to the jurisprudence and scholarship of this underappreciated but well-developed jurisdiction. The book encompasses all the major current and historical arbitration cases in Korea, alongside practical and scholarly commentary. In keeping with the growth of international arbitration in Asia, Korea is emerging as an alternative centre of arbitration, and the number of international arbitration cases involving Korean parties remains substantial in major arbitration institutions such as the International Chamber of Commerce, Singapore International Arbitration Centre, and Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre. The Korean Commercial Arbitration Board (KCAB) continues to report substantial growth in the number of international arbitrations. Furthermore, Korea’s Arbitration Act, as well as the KCAB’s own International Rules, were revised in 2016.
