Peter Megens presents a summary of this edition.
There have been recent and significant changes to the domestic commercial arbitration legislation and also the Commonwealth International Arbitration Act.
Arbitration still remains the preferred method of settling international disputes but it continues to attract criticism on the grounds of cost and delay.
