This present book, “European Union law and arbitration. Slices and slides. Text, cases and materials”, is what the title highlights: slices and slides. This training course was prepared following he invitation addressed by Mr Professor Flavius Baias to teach the course "European Union law and arbitration" at the master's degree in "International Arbitration" of the Faculty of Law of the University of Bucharest.
The teaching material within this volume is rather a series of ideas or of references: it has a methodological, operational nature. But it is also a first form of a general construction dealing about the relationship between European Union law and arbitration. Documents enclosed reflect both theoretical and practical experiences. The reader has to get familiar with advanced concepts and mechanisms of both areas in order to fully understand this material.
I hope that this first step will be followed by debates and studies relevant to this field also in Romania.
