Alejandro M Garro, Michael Fernández
From: Choice of Venue in International Arbitration
Edited By: Michael Ostrove, Claudia Salomon, Bette Shifman
This chapter evaluates the merits of Buenos Aires as a venue for international arbitration proceedings. It discusses the history and development of arbitration in Argentina; the processes and rules involved as well as the role of courts in the conduct of arbitration proceedings; and rules for arbitral awards. It concludes that arbitration in Argentina has its pitfalls, especially in light of the negative perception of arbitration brought about by numerous investor complaints against Argentina and the fact that the country continues to operate with an obsolete statutory framework in matters of arbitration in general, with very little attention paid to the singularity of international commercial arbitration. Arbitration law in Argentina fails to embrace a positive approach towards the enforcement of domestic as well as foreign arbitration agreements and arbitral awards.
