CIArb is proud to announce the release of a new book, “A Brand New World: The Evolution and Future of Arbitration”.

A truly global effort, the authors hail from Australia, South Africa, Singapore, India, Turkey, France, Italy, Belgium, Kenya, the US, the UK, Malaysia, Lebanon, UAE, Ireland, and Germany. The essays in the book cover topics in international arbitration with a distinctly forward-looking perspective.
