Practising Virtue

Oxford University Press

This chapter analyses the Alabama Claims Arbitration that took place in Geneva in 1872 between the United States and Great Britain. This arbitration concerned the claim that Great Britain violated its duty of neutrality during the American Civil War; it also constituted the basic model for international arbitration today. In tracing how the United States and Great Britain reached agreement to arbitrate and how the proceedings developed on a day-to-day basis, the chapter argues that party-appointment of arbitrators is crucial for the parties to have trust in the decision-making process.
