Scandinavia: Setting out the new ground rules
Thanks to its long history in Sweden, arbitration is deeply rooted in its legal culture. But that does not mean to say that the rules could not benefit from a spring clean, say Stefan Lindskog and Emilia Skog
Arbitration has been a practice area in Sweden for many years. Although the current Swedish Arbitration Act has been in force for only five years, its predecessor was already enacted in 1929 and arbitration was well-known long before that. Accordingly, arbitration in Sweden has been a significant part of dispute resolution for a long time. Sweden also has an impressive history as an arbitration venue and continues to play an active part in international dispute resolutions. But because of its long-standing reputation, the significant increase in arbitration reported in other European countries cannot be found in Sweden.
