Abstract

Third-party funding raises a host of ethical and procedural issues for international arbitration, perhaps most notably in connection with arbitrator comportment. The need for sustained study of these concerns prompted establishment of a Task Force on Third-Party Funding in International Arbitration, convened by the International Council for Commercial Arbitration (ICCA) along with Queen Mary College at the University of London. The Task Force, comprised of stakeholders from a range of viewpoints and backgrounds, will assess both real and perceived concerns that this relatively new practice raises, as well as what might be done, and why. This article outlines the Task Force's approach to these issues, work to date, and future aims.
