About the book

The work addresses one of the most central themes of international arbitration by combining insights into the arbitral practice with principles of private international law, including case law from the most diverse arbitral jurisdictions within the scope of application, limitations, and main provisions of the New York Convention.

This is a valuable guide not only for legal practitioners engaged in international commercial arbitration, but also for academics and students interested in the resolution of cross-border disputes.
