Nerys Jefford, 'Challenges to Arbitrators for Bias: How Concerned Should We Be?' (2014) 16 Asian Dispute Review, Issue 1, pp. 24–29


This article discusses the reasons underlying the risk of an increase in the incidence of challenges to arbitrators for lack of impartiality and independence, notwithstanding the influence of the IBA Guidelines on Conflicts of Interest in International Arbitration. The principles applicable to determining such challenges, and the uncertainties that may nevertheless arise from them, are discussed by reference to Hong Kong and English case law.
