Arbitration as a means of dispute settlement alternative to litigation never enjoyed an unopposed rise to prominence at any given era in any legal tradition. The reasons for questioning its wisdom ranged from a simple economic competition between judges and arbitrators to more profound doctrinal and structural disagreements. Specific concerns seem to have featured more prominently than other concerns in each era. In the most contemporary world of international arbitration, culture and cultural diversity have become matters of great concern. This chapter traces the political and cultural history of international arbitration for background, addressing such topics as the political and cultural history of contemporary international arbitration and the evolution of the courts’ tolerance of international arbitration in various legal traditions.
