Critical Acclaim
‘The clear protagonist of this very elegantly written book is the EU sage behind Arts. 1 (2) (d); 73 (2) and Recital 12 Brussels Ibis Regulation. To introduce EU exclusive external competence into the saga is a novelty and an interesting idea that can claim originality. Plus, anti-suit orders issued by arbitration tribunals and anti-arbitration orders get the most intense treatment yet to be found in a monograph.’
– Peter Mankowski, Universität Hamburg, Germany
