In this Dissertation Thesis, issues concerning the
IBA Guidelines on Conflicts of Interest in
International Arbitration 2004 and the IBA Guidelin
es on Conflicts of Interest in International
Arbitration 2014 will be examined and discussed.
Starting with an overview on the IBA Guidelines on
Conflicts of Interest and their le-
gal status, this Thesis continues with the interpre
tation of some occurring issues, like the
standard of independence and impartiality and the d
uty of disclosure. Before proceeding
with the topic regarding the amendments that derive
d from the revision process of 2012,
the impact of the IBA Guidelines in practice is also presented.
Since the IBA Guidelines 2014 retain the core of th
e IBA Guidelines 2004, it is evident
that the issues discussed on Chapter III, titled: T
he IBA Guidelines on Conflicts of Interest in
International Arbitration 2004, concern at the same
extent the new IBA Guidelines 2014. In
this way repetitions are avoided.
