Dossier VIII
Is Arbitration Only As Good as the Arbitrator?
Status, Powers and Role of
the Arbitrator

2011 Edition

Whether arbitration is only as good as the arbitrator is a question that has often been asked. Indeed, the status, the powers and the role of the arbitrator are central issues that international practitioners often approach with erroneous views – to the detriment of the whole arbitration process.

Therefore, anyone interested in international arbitration, whether experienced arbitrator or in-house counsel working with contracts and arbitration clauses, should read this compilation of expert views on thorny issues like:


  •  Clashes between arbitrator and litigants
  •  The arbitrator’s relation with third parties
  •  Rules of law vs. freedom of the arbitrator
  •  Arbitral discrimination under English and EU law
  •  Confidentiality issues

The Institute of World Business Law’s ‘Dossiers’ is a series that has gained international prestige. The Dossiers are the outcome of the Institute’s annual meetings, where experts from around the globe come together in a unique think tank to discuss salient issues of international arbitration.
