The 12th edition of the Baker McKenzie International Arbitration Yearbook is now available. This new edition focuses in particular on diversity in international arbitration and considers the historical position, the present landscape and what the future might hold for this important topic.

The yearbook reviews important developments in arbitration over the past year across 45 jurisdictions (including the UAE and Saudi Arabia), notably:

  • changes to the settlement of investor-State disputes;
  • the ongoing uncertainty around the future of intra-EU BITs following the European Court of Justice’s decision in Achmea;
  • the continued push for procedural efficiency; and
  • revised national laws relating to the funding of arbitration.
