About The Practice of Arbitration

This book offers a series of commentaries on noteworthy arbitral awards and court decisions on arbitration. All contributions focus on the practice of arbitration. Influential authors with proven arbitration experience share their insights on celebrated and less well-known cases, drawn from various countries, various arbitration institutions and including both commercial and investment arbitration.

This collection of essays celebrates the work and scholarship of Hans van Houtte, who has been a professor of international commercial arbitration at the University of Leuven for more than 20 years. In addition to his widely -praised contribution to the theory of arbitration, Professor Van Houtte has built a long career in the practice of arbitration, presiding over a vast array of arbitral tribunals and holding appointments to international tribunals, most recently as president of the Iran-US Claims Tribunal.

Hans van Houtte has always been concerned with the practical usefulness of scholarly writings, and this book respects this approach.

This volume will prove essential for all arbitration practitioners and will also be of great interest also to academics and research students with an interest in international arbitration.

It also makes pleasant reading and even allows a sneak peek into the person that van Houtte is. This is certainly a book in which both practitioners, academics and even students can find something to their liking.” –  Jean-François Tossens, b-Arbitra, Volume 1, 2013

“…an asset for everyone interested in international arbitration, especially young practitioners and students willing to know more about practical aspects in international commercial arbitration in Belgium and all over the world.” –  Yaroslava Sorokhtey, Association for International Arbitration Newsletter, 'In Touch', January 2013
