Connerty, an English barrister with particular expertise in the field of international arbitration, introduces each topic, illustrating it by decisions of the International Court of Justice, Permanent Court of Arbitration, International Tribunal on the Law of the Sea, and decisions of national courts.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“The Manual is impressive in the sheer breadth of subject matter discussed. Its balance of concision with sufficiency of detail makes it a primer on all the major international dispute resolution mechanisms and organisations at work in the world today.” Asian Dispute Review

“This book is an excellent resource for members of the international business community, international ADR practitioners and researchers.” Dispute Resolution Journal

“This is an excellent book, which more than fulfils the author's aim. His clearly defined structure, economy and clarity of language make this an extremely useful weapon in the practitioner's armoury.” The International Journal of Arbitration, Mediation and Dispute Management

Sandra Day O’Connor
“International dispute resolution, in one or another form, is the practical concern of innumerable businessmen, public servants, lawyers and leaders. The Manual will be a useful tool."
William K. Slate II
"The explosive expansion of cross-border, indeed trans-global, commerce has led to a corresponding increase in the need for uniform, pertinent and enforceable resolution processes that address disputes arising out of international commercial transactions. This Manual represents the latest thinking in the area of international dispute settlement as it affects a number of areas of emerging interest."
The Right Honorable Sir Phillip Otton
“A comprehensive, far-reaching and in-depth analysis of international dispute resolution. Anyone engaged in the resolution of any disputes throughout the Commonwealth, indeed the world, must have this manual at the side of their desk.”
