Neil Kaplan, "If It Ain't Broke, Don't Change It", 80 Arbitration 2 (2014) Chartered Institute of Arbitrators. pp 172-175 by Mr. Neil Kaplan, CBE, QC, SBS (Hong Kong/United Kingdom)
Newest is not always best. This article raises the issue as to whether in international arbitration we have gone too far in relying upon written submissions and the belief that all has been read and understood by the tribunal. A compromise between the two extremes is investigated.

The organizers of this conference have asked me to provide some short comments on practical issues and future perspectives of investment arbitration from my experience as an arbitrator in such disputes. In the many investment arbitrations I have done in recent years, a considerable number involved parties from Russia and CIS countries, both involving the State or government or private companies in these countries.
