About the book:
This book is the first publication to deal with the subject of class arbitration in the European Union. It investigates to what extent class arbitration (either US style or a European variant) may take place in Europe and to what extent class arbitral awards are enforceable in European jurisdictions such as France, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Hungary, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom, Belgium and The Netherlands.
The authors are amongst the world’s leading arbitrators and academics in the field of arbitration. This volume serves as a critical study for shaping future practice and setting out future rules, policies and guidance in relation to class arbitration and collective remedies. It is an indispensable addition to every ADR practitioner’s library.
