Arbitration confidentiality appears to be the accepted orthodoxy in England. Yet in the arena of international arbitration, arbitration confidentiality has not been uniformly recognised. The aim of this monograph is to explore in-depth the concept of confidentiality in arbitration proceedings and its exceptions. This study examines the case law in England and compares that with the positions in Australia, New Zealand, the United States, Sweden, France, Germany and Singapore.

Based on data collated concerning defamation cases decided by the Singapore courts from 1965 to 2015, this monograph assesses the trends in the courts’ use of foreign decisions and the diverse origins and nature of the foreign sources. In addition to the research methodology, it discusses the comparative law literature relating to such use of foreign precedents by judges and their contributions to the transnational judicial dialogue. Lawyers and judges may also be interested in the comparative analysis of the defamation laws of the selected foreign jurisdictions (England, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Malaysia and Hong Kong) as well as the specific legal issues (namely, defamatory meaning, reference to plaintiff and publication, the legal defences to defamation, the remedies and conflict of laws). This book not only reflects upon the past 50 years of legal evolution, but also looks ahead to the potential challenges and prospects for the development of the tort of defamation in Singapore.
