Description: In light of the exponential expansion of the scope and frequency of arbitration proceedings in commercial dealings throughout the world, much has been written on the actual benefits conferred by the resort to private, rather than public, dispute resolution tribunals. Indeed, neutrality, enforceability, and expertise make arbitration an indispensable mechanism in the resolution of complex, cross-border economic disputes.
