Welcome to the eCourse "Introduction to Arbitration: Key Issues on International Commercial and Investment Arbitration"

The course is part of the project “Rule of Law: Arbitration as an opportunity for peaceful dispute settlement” organized by the Europa-Institut at Saarland University and supported by the DAAD with funds of the Federal Foreign Office. The aim of the project is to introduce you to the key issues in commercial and investment arbitration and to analyse the specific situation in Southeast Europe from a “Rule of Law” perspective.

In this eCourse, you will find a number of video-podcasts which were recorded by renowned academics and practitioners. Those videos will allow you to familiarize with the key aspects of international dispute resolution, such as the arbitration agreement, applicable laws, jurisdiction, the role of national courts, recognition and enforcement, etc. Until the end of December and during January 2021, new videos will be added to the eCourse, which will finally consist of approximately 30 topics that reflect current discussions in international arbitration.

In case you have any questions, requests, suggestions or general feedback, please send an e-mail to Ms. Bianca Böhme (

We hope you enjoy the eCourse!
