Summary
The Rise of Transparency in International Arbitration is inspired by a joint research conducted in the last years by the Milan Chamber of Arbitration and the Law School of the University Carlo Cattaneo LIUC, Castellanza, in Italy. The two bodies have shared a common concern in order to increase the use of international commercial arbitration and to develop a proper culture in the field: the need for enhancing transparency and especially for a wider dissemination of arbitral awards. The advantages of arbitration as the main alternative means of dispute resolution are well known and undisputed. Privacy and confidentiality are among them and at the same time among the prevailing features of any arbitral proceedings. However, sometimes users have the feeling to deal with a close and too slow-growing world. The need, if not the request, for a greater accountability of the arbitral world in the whole is more and more widespread. In this context the aim of this book is on the one hand to spur discussion and to shed new light on the traditional idea of confidentiality in international commercial arbitration (and in some other figures alike). Although this idea is sometimes founded upon sound reasons that cannot be ignored or totally set aside, it must be reconsidered by taking into account the rise of transparency. On the other hand, a specific proposal is made in order to step ahead from the current situation, with particular reference to the issue of the publication of the awards. In this respect, the main outcome is the Guidelines for the Anonymous Publication of Arbitral Awards, already adopted and experienced by the Milan Chamber. They are addressed to institutions, practitioners, scholars with the goal to favor the circulation of the awards and of the related decisions.--, Provided by Publisher
