For a variety of reasons, considerable time may elapse between the commencement of arbitral (or judicial) proceedings and the final decision. As a result, the very rights a party seeks to protect through arbitration may be threatened by the length of the process. To protect these rights a party may seek interim measures (also known as conservatory measures, provisional relief or preliminary injunctions), the subject of this Chapter.
