The Baltic Yearbook of International Law is an annual publication containing contributions on topical issues in international law and related fields that are relevant to Baltic affairs and beyond. In addition to articles on different aspects of international law, each Yearbook focuses on a theme with particular importance to the development of international law. The Baltic Yearbook of International Law aims to contribute to the development of thought, standard-setting and relevant practices in the world.

This volume contains a collection of essays that were initially presented at the conference ‘Arbitration in the Baltics: Contemporary Issues’, which took place at the Riga Graduate School of Law in Latvia. Arbitration is increasingly gaining ground in all three Baltic States, although there is still some way to go yet. In addition to insights into the private law developments relevant to arbitration in the Baltics, this volume contains articles on the history of international law in the region and modern challenges presented to domestic law through international developments. The International Law Materials section contains reports on the practices of all three Baltic States
