Public Policy in International Arbitration

Whether arbitration is understood as a mere culture of contract or part of international justice, the notion of public policy is crucial for arbitration’s efficiency and legitimacy as a safeguard of public interests in private dispute settlement. This course focuses on how arbitrability, internationally mandatory rules and public policy exceptions fit together both in theory and practice, and explores concepts such as transnational public policy as a limit to parties’ autonomy.
