Abstract

The vast majority of the information concerning international commercial arbitration and the arbitrators’ decision-making method is obtained through anecdotal sources and a limited number of published awards. The aim of this article is to review the advantages and disadvantages of systematic publication of arbitral awards in order to raise further awareness of the importance of the subject. It critically analyses various suggestions for the implementation of publication mechanisms together with the establishment of awards repositories and, finally, makes some suggestions for the future.

Keywords: international commercial arbitration, publication of awards, confidentiality
