Drawing on arbitral case law and the author’s experience as arbitrator and counsel, this article identifies categories of abuse of process that arise in contemporary arbitral practice and proposes legal tools that can effectively tackle this growing phenomenon.

Brics dispute resolution mechanism: Challenges ahead, but promises much

BRICS2016 | Octubre 25
The idea behind a Brics-centric dispute resolution mechanism stems from challenges faced frequently by developing countries in existing international arbitration frameworks.

This often leads to adverse economic ramifications of arbitral awards for these countries.
