Hybrid Dispute Processing in Japan:

Show Summary Details


Based on arbitration practices in Japan, this chapter proposes the concept of hybrid dispute processing, which combines some of the basic dispute-processing elements such as conciliation, arbitration, and litigation. It identifies the need to recognize the evolution of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) and to cope with the problems arising from an increasing “colonization” of arbitration by litigation in international commercial contexts. The chapter also discusses several examples of hybrid dispute processing from various international contexts, especially Japan, and points out that such hybrid dispute resolution will contribute to the harmonization of dispute processing from various dispute cultures across the world.

Keywords: dispute processing; litigation; ADR; international commerce; international arbitration
