About the book
Arbitration for Peace places arbitration in a wider historical context, thereby making the subject accessible beyond the narrow circle of specialists without losing its legal relevance. The book contributes to a continued dynamic development of dispute resolution in complicated or sensitive geopolitical contexts, and demonstrates how arbitration has and can continue to play an important role for international relations. Each chapter is devoted to different international landmark arbitration cases – primarily state-to-state but also including commercial disputes with geopolitical dimensions – and represents how arbitration has resolved disputes in cases regarding for example potential escalation of armed conflict, investor-state relations, expropriation of foreign companies, environmental issues, and migrants’ access and protection, and more.
