Abstract

Arbitration is a means of resolving disputes pursuant to an arbitration agreement. It is driven essentially by the ‘principle of party autonomy’ under which the parties are free to agree on how the arbitral proceedings are to be conducted subject to mandatory legal provisions. The arbitral tribunal is duty bound to maintain a delicate balance between the parties, ensure procedural fairness and publish a legally enforceable award. Any infraction of this duty may lead to applications made to court to challenge the award. This creates apprehension, anxiety and fear in the mind of the arbitrator – due process paranoia. Is the paranoia real or imaginary?
