For many, "forum shopping" is a term with disparaging connotations, indicating something "evil." That is why various policies against forum shopping exist, both on a domestic and an international level. As for the reasons adduced in justification of this anti-forum shopping stance, they include the assertion that forum shopping goes against the principle of consistency of outcomes, that it overburdens certain courts and creates unnecessary expenses. May a litigant pursue the most favorable - rather than the simplest or closest - forum? To what extent is forum shopping relevant in the international commercial arbitration context? The contributions in this book, written by renowned authors, provide answers to these questions and more.
