Abstract

International commercial disputes are getting more complex with the time being, which necessitates the adoption of compulsory consolidation of arbitration by the courts in some countries and regions. In practice, courts usually justify their decisions on three major grounds. However, compulsory consolidation of arbitration in essence is in violation of major principles and natures of international commercial arbitration system, and thus has insurmountable pitfalls. Consequently, a review of recent legislation and practice shows that compulsory consolidation of arbitration is fading nowadays world-widely.

Keywords: Compulsory Consolidation of Arbitration, Efficiency Principle, Party Autonomy Principle
