The first annual edition of the Stockholm Arbitration Yearbook, a new publication by Wolters Kluwer, is now available. Abstracts for the 2020 edition are due 8 December 2019.
Each year, Stockholm is the seat for a wide range of international disputes, resolved through ad hoc arbitration or as cases administered by the SCC Arbitration Institute. Building on Stockholm’s role as an arbitration hub, the Stockholm Arbitration Yearbook addresses current issues that are of interest to the wider international arbitration community. This new annual publication, launched under the auspices of the Stockholm Centre for Commercial Law, is designed to meet the information needs of arbitration practitioners and parties from all over the world. The Yearbook is published by Wolters Kluwer and is also available on the global online database KluwerArbitration.com.
The 2019 edition of the Yearbook contains articles on a variety of current topics, including multi-appointment bias, cross-examination and advocacy, robots as arbitrators, and security for costs and third-party funding in investment arbitration. Also included are articles on due process paranoia, a summary of recent developments in Swedish arbitration-related case law and a review of the changes in the revised Swedish Arbitration Act. Authors in the first edition include Kaj Hobér, Ewan McKendrick QC, Lucy Greenwood, Christer Danielsson and Claes Lundblad. The full table of contents, and information on how to order the Yearbook, is available at https://lrus.wolterskluwer.com/store/product/stockholm-arbitration-yearbook-2019/.
