Globalisation has made international commercial arbitration more popular as a means of dispute resolution. In the Asia-Pacific region and since the early 1990s the number of arbitration requests received by the region’s largest arbitral institutions has trebled.

This article looks at best practice for international arbitration and in particular how it works in Australia. Part 1 discussed the legal regime in Australia (including a current review) in the international context. It began to look at ‘Interim measures of protection’. Part 2 focuses on ‘Ex parte applications for interim protection measures’ before reaching a conclusion about international arbitration in Australia.
