About the Authors
  • Arbitration in the Digital Age analyses how technology can be efficiently and legitimately used to further sound arbitration proceedings. The contributions, from a variety of arbitration scholars, report on current developments, predict future trends, and assesses their impact from a practical, legal, and technical point of view. The book also discusses the relationship between arbitration and the Internet and analyses how social media can affect arbitrators and counsel's behaviour. Furthermore, it analyses the validity of electronic arbitration and awards, as well as Online Arbitration (OArb). The volume establishes, on a very practical level, how technology could be used by arbitration institutions, arbitrators, parties to an arbitration and counsel. This book will be of special interest to arbitrators and lawyers involved in international commercial arbitration.

    • Highlights all the relevant issues regarding the use of technology in the context of arbitration, and informs the reader about the most recent developments in the field of technology and arbitration
    • Examines a very topical subject, keeping the reader up-to-date on the most recent trends in arbitration and potential future paths
    • Theoretical as well as practical perspectives gives the readers the tools so they can keep on the cutting edge of the development of technology and arbitration
