Abstract

Few criteria for evaluating arbitrator independence and impartiality will stay foolproof for long, given how ingenious fools often prove themselves to be. No less than in other areas of the law, elaboration of ethical standards for arbitrators implicates a tension between the transient and the permanent. Conflict-of-interest principles remain most useful if implemented with sensitivity to new trouble spots. Traditional ethical models serve as starting points for evaluating the fitness of those to whom business managers and nations entrust their treasure and their welfare. The constant evolution in expectations by users of the arbitral system call for regular adjustment in formulation and application of contours for acceptable arbitrator behavior.

Keywords: Arbitration, International Arbitration, Arbitrator Integrity, Impartiality, Ethical Standards
