International Arbitration

Introduction

International Arbitration | Research Guide International Law

International Commercial Arbitration is a method of private dispute resolution whereby the parties to an international business contract agree to have their disputes resolved by one or more private individuals, i.e., the arbitrators rather than by a court of law.  It requires the agreement of the parties, which is usually given via an arbitration clause that is inserted into the contract or business agreement. The decision of the arbitrator(s) is final and binding on the parties on the basis of their initial agreement to arbitrate. In case the arbitral decision (award) is not carried out by the losing party, performance of it may be enforced through national court proceedings.

This Guide is intended as a starting point for research on International Commercial Arbitration. It provides the basic legal materials available in the Peace Palace Library, both in print and electronic format. Handbooks, leading articles, bibliographies, periodicals, serial publications and documents of interest are presented in the Selective Bibliography section. Links to the PPL Catalogue are inserted. The Library’s systematic code, i.e., 322 and keywords International Arbitration and International Commercial Arbitration are instrumental for searching through the Catalogue. Special attention is given to our subscriptions on databases, e-journals, e-books and other electronic resources. Finally, this Research Guide features links to relevant websites and other online resources of particular interest.

  • Rogers, C.A., Ethics in International Arbitration, Oxford, Oxford University Press, 2014.

    Rogers, C.A., Ethics in International Arbitration, Oxford, Oxford University Press, 2014.

    International arbitration is a remarkably resilient institution, but many unresolved and largely unacknowledged ethical quandaries lurk below the surface. Globalisation of commercial trade has increased the number and diversity of parties, counsel, experts and arbitrators, which has in turn lead to more frequent ethical conflicts just as procedures have become more formal and transparent.  The predictable result is that ethical transgressions are increasingly evident and less tolerable. Despite these developments, regulation of various actors in the systemarbitrators, lawyers, experts, third-party funders and arbitral institutionsremains ambiguous and often ineffectual. Ethics in International Arbitration systematically analyses the causes and effects of these developments as they relate to the professional conduct of arbitrators, counsel, experts, and third-party funders in international commercial and investment arbitration.  This work proposes a model for effective ethical self-regulation, meaning regulation of professional conduct at an international level and within existing arbitral procedures and structures. The work draws on historical developments and current trends to propose analytical frameworks for addressing existing problems and reifying the legitimacy of international arbitration into the future.

  • Vorburger, S., International Arbitration and Cross-Border Insolvency : Comparative Perspectives, Alphen a/d Rijn, Kluwer Law International, 2014.

    Vorburger, S., International Arbitration and Cross-Border Insolvency : Comparative Perspectives, Alphen a/d Rijn, Kluwer Law International, 2014.

    This book provides an in-depth analysis of applicable rules and policies under  the current legal framework and case law of national courts and arbitral  tribunals, emphasizing developments in five countries where high levels of  international arbitration occur: England, the United States, France, Germany  and Switzerland. Among the complex issues that arise when an insolvency  disrupts an arbitration, the author examines the following: recognition of insolvencies by arbitral tribunals; determination of the law applicable to the effects of an insolvency on  arbitration; effects of an insolvency on validity and scope of an arbitration agreement; effects of an insolvency on capacity of the parties to an international  arbitration; suspension of arbitral proceedings due to an insolvency; and effects of an insolvency on the recognition and enforcement of arbitral awards.  In addition to providing a comparative legal analysis of issues that arise in  connection with the collision of international arbitration and cross-border  insolvency, the author sets out proposals to clarify policy and procedure.  Dealing with cross-border insolvency law issues in international arbitration  presents an enormous challenge for arbitration practitioners, arbitral  tribunals and national courts.

  • Daly, B.W. (et al.), A Guide to the PCA Arbitration Rules, Oxford, Oxford University Press, 2014. Showcase item

    Daly, B.W. (et al.), A Guide to the PCA Arbitration Rules, Oxford, Oxford University Press, 2014.

    This is a guide to and commentary on the new procedural rules for arbitration adopted by the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) in December 2012. The PCA is a unique arbitral institution – an intergovernmental organization counting over one hundred member states – with a rapidly growing annual caseload of arbitrations involving various combinations of states, state entities, intergovernmental organizations, and private parties. The 2012 PCA Rules are the most recent set of arbitral rules from any institution, and constitute a consolidation of four sets of PCA Rules drafted in the 1990s, and updated in light of PCA experience and the revision of other procedural regimes. They include special provisions adapted to arbitrations involving public entities and a number of novel provisions drafted on the basis of the PCA’s experience administering arbitrations. In recent years, the PCA caseload has expanded to the extent that the total amount in dispute in PCA cases is estimated to be greater than that in any other arbitral institution, increasing the need for a comprehensive guide to arbitration under its auspices. This text benefits from the unparalleled insights of its three co-authors, all of whom are PCA lawyers, one of whom is the Deputy Secretary-General of the PCA, and a member of the drafting committee for the 2012 PCA Rules. An introductory chapter, describing the mandate for the revised rules from the PCA member states, as well as the drafting process itself, is followed by a rule-by-rule analysis following the familiar structure of the rules themselves. This analysis is split into four sections: the introductory rules; the composition of the arbitral tribunal; arbitral proceedings; and the award. The comprehensive appendices are intended to reduce the need for recourse to other materials and provide a stand-alone resource.

  • Tang, Z., Jurisdiction and Arbitration Agreements in International Commercial Law, London, New York, 2014.

    Tang, Z., Jurisdiction and Arbitration Agreements in International Commercial Law, London, New York, 2014.

    Arbitration and jurisdiction agreements are frequently used in transnational commercial contracts to reduce risk, gain efficacy and acquire certainty and predictability. Because of the similarities between these two types of procedural autonomy agreements, they are often treated in a similar way by courts and practitioners. This book offers a comprehensive study of the prerequisites, effectiveness, and enforcement of exclusive jurisdiction and arbitration agreements in international dispute resolution. It examines whether jurisdiction and arbitration clauses have identical effects in private international law and whether they have been or should be given the same treatment by most countries in the world. By comparing the treatment of these clauses in the US, China, UK and EU, Zheng Sophia Tang demonstrates how, in practice, exclusive jurisdiction and arbitration agreements are enforced. The book considers whether the Hague Convention on Choice of Court Agreements could be treated as a litigating counterpart to the New York Convention, and whether it could work successfully to facilitate judicial cooperation and party autonomy in international commerce. This book breaks new ground in combining updated materials in EU, US and UK law with unique resources on Chinese law and practice. It will be valuable for academics and practitioners working in the field of private international law and international arbitration.

    Webster, T. and M. Bühler, Handbook of ICC arbitration : Commentary, Precedents, Materials, London, Sweet & Maxwell/Thomson Reuters, 2014.

    The Handbook of ICC Arbitration provides expert analysis of the whole process of using and adhering to the ICC Arbitration Rules. It examines close up the diverse issues that can occur during an arbitration and hosts essential information related to arbitration on an international level with reference to published and unpublished awards and procedural orders, as well as to many decisions of national courts. This text is a practical, rule-by-rule guide to the Rules of the International Chamber of Commerce, one of the world’s leading international arbitration institutions. It is for both the experienced practitioner and those approaching international arbitration for the first time, clearly explaining basic principles while at the same time providing the depth of analysis and references needed to solve the complex procedural issues that can arise during the arbitration process. The chapters follow the Rules of the ICC, each one setting out the relevant principles in plain English, before dealing with more complicated issues of interpretation, providing reference to discussions of the issues by other authors and to relevant case law and awards.
