(p.97) 5 The Culture of Arbitration and the Defence of Arbitral Legitimacy
Practising Virtue

James H Carter

Oxford University Press

This chapter considers the legitimacy of international arbitration. Responding to Jan Paulsson’s suggestion that all arbitrators should be appointed by an institution, not the parties, it stresses the fundamental importance of the party-appointment of arbitrators for the parties’ trust in the system. It also cites the moderating effect the community of arbitrators has on individual arbitrators and arbitral tribunals. After all, it is this peer group in which arbitrators have to build and maintain a reputation for their virtue: judgment, neutrality, and expertise.

Keywords:   international arbitration, legitimacy, party-appointed arbitrators, arbitral tribunals
