Chapter Summary

It is very difficult to describe the part of the proceedings that starts from the moment when the arbitral tribunal receives the initial file and concludes when everything is ready for the final hearing. An international arbitrator must have three main concerns: one is to approach the proceedings with a cultural neutrality; the second is to organize proceedings that are tailor made for the case he or she has to conduct; and the third is to maintain at all times equality of treatment among the parties. Among the various advantages that may explain the impressive success of international arbitration as a way of settling international disputes, its neutrality is probably the most significant. In order to devise tailor-made proceedings, it is advisable to organize a management conference with the participation of the arbitrators, the parties, and their counsel.
