DP8724 On the Selection of Arbitrators

A key issue in arbitration, which resolves disputes among parties, involves the procedure for selecting an arbitrator. We take an implementation-theoretic approach and provide theoretical, empirical and experimental analyses of this problem. Our findings highlight the problems with current procedures and suggest that alternative procedures, which we propose, may be superior.
