The International Chamber of Commerce’s world-renowned Institute of World Business Law, where legal and business experts convene, has devoted an entire publication to money laundering and other forms of corruption: Arbitration – Money Laundering, Corruption and Fraud. The first first in a series of ICC Institute Dossiers focuses both on the nature of the problem and the lawyer/arbitrator’s response to it.

This useful text contains the proceedings of a conference on arbitration and money laundering organized by the ICC Institute of World Business Law. It brings the reader the expertise of lawyers, academicians and chartered accountants from a range of countries and addresses the key questions arbitrators and legal practitioners want answered: "Is the arbitrator’s role in a case of fraud different from his role in other disputes?" "Is the arbitrator bound to report a case of money laundering or fraud if he has a suspicion that something is wrong?" "Is counsel to report someone coming to him for advice?"

The Dossier gives a comprehensive overview of the issues. It begins with a look at the nature of the problems lawyers and other professionals face and the solutions they adopt in their daily business. The second part of the book concentrates on the problems raised for arbitrators by money laundering, fraud and bribery. The book ends with a detailed Q&A discussion section.
