The Arbitration Agreement in International Commercial Arbitration

The arbitration agreement is the cornerstone of international commercial arbitration. It raises many issues that in part receive divergent answers under different arbitration laws. This course explores these issues in depth, including the notion of separability of the arbitration agreement and the principle of competence-competence that play a fundamental role in the theory and practice of international commercial arbitration.
