The 16th edition of the Baker McKenzie International Arbitration Yearbook is now available.
Each year we work to provide timely and relevant information on the key developments in arbitration across over 45 jurisdictions.
This year our review includes the following:
- New arbitral rules from major institutions including the AAA, CAM-CCBC, CEPANI, DIAC and SCC
- The ongoing reform of arbitration legislation to reflect international best practice, with recent developments in Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, the United Kingdom and Vietnam
- The continued effects of the European Court of Justice’s decision in Achmea
- The decision of a number of European states to withdraw from the Energy Charter Treaty and the accession of new parties to the ICSID convention
- The latest case law on the recognition and enforcement of foreign arbitral awards under the New York Convention, which has now been ratified in 172 jurisdictions worldwide
- New requirements from several institutions to disclose the sources of third-party funding, and the expansion of financing options for arbitration parties in Hong Kong
In this year's edition we have introduced a new chapter on the arbitration framework in the OHADA area, which includes 17 African states.
The Yearbook is published electronically via our Global Arbitration News blog.
