This chapter seeks to map and assess the rise of international commercial arbitration and investment arbitration in the era of globalization. Section 1 presents four principal models or theoretical understandings of arbitration governance: the economic-rationalist model, the cultural-sociological model, the power model, and the constitutionalization model. These models serve much like Weberian ideal types; they are organizing devices of a complex reality, privileging certain key factors over others. The various models need not be mutually exclusive but can overlap, interact or even inform each other. The exact nature of the relationship among the different models is largely context-specific and a matter for further research. Most contributions in this book fit one of these analytical approaches. Section 2 offers a summary of the individual chapters, and Section 3 provides suggestions for further research.
