Introduction by Chantal-Aimée Doerries KC and Professor Doug Jones AO 

This year contains a number of historic anniversaries, ranging from the 250th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party, to the 75th anniversary of the end of the Battle of Kursk and many others, including, in the UK, the 150th birthday of the specialist construction court in England and Wales, now called the Technology and Construction Court. Closer to home it is the 40th birthday of the International Construction Law Review, which was set up almost exactly 40 years ago, in October 1983. This fourth and final part of 2023 recognises these industry anniversaries with specific contributions, and also includes a number of articles from around the globe addressing a variety of topics which reflect the breadth of construction disputes, ranging from unjust enrichment claims to reviewing collaboration in construction disputes based on the experience in Singapore, and from bulk expert referrals in construction disputes in Queensland to extension of time provisions and notice requirements in the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) Courts.
