The Yearbook includes the keynote speech at the VAD 2022 and the “Vienna propositions for the Resolution of Shareholder and Corporate Disputes”. Other contributions address a variety of topics, predominantly concentrating on commercial and investment arbitration, including
- disputes in Austrian private foundations and arbitration agreements in foundation deeds,

and other hot topics such as

Under the title "Resolving Disputes in Austrian Private Foundation" Florian Kremslehner and Ann-Kathrin Rechny analyzed typical conflicts within Austrian private foundations between certain categories of claimants (founders, beneficiaries, directors) and their respective counterparties, including the foundation itself.
As an alternative dispute resolution they propose implementing a Dispute Resolution Board ("DBR") within private foundations and outline how one might be established to resolve controversies before they develop into a formal dispute.
