ABSTRACT
This article presents a number of incidents pertaining to arbitration throughout Europe and Great Britain. The English Court of Appeal held that arbitrators should decide whether a contract between two parties is valid, unless that which makes it invalid is directly related to the arbitration clause. The Swiss Federal Tribunal decided that a professor be disqualified as the arbitrator of a case to which he was assigned, because he published an article that showed bias in his arbitration decisions. In Sweden, the Arbitration Rules of the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce was revised to include allow arbitral tribunals awards to support their enforceability.
