The Culture of International Arbitration

Won L. Kidane

Oxford University Press

International arbitration has developed its own culture but that culture is not representative of the culture of all users of international arbitration. Contrary to what is commonly suggested, it has not developed a common culture—what it developed is a culture of ignoring other cultures. This has become a question of legitimacy. The summary of conclusions succinctly presents the core arguments of the book in this regard. It returns to the question of how despite five decades of international arbitration, the process is still dominated by an elitism that excludes arbitrators from developing nations on the grounds that they are still not ready to take on the tasks of an arbitrator.

Keywords:   international arbitration culture, common culture, ignoring culture, representation, other cultures
