The Kluwer Arbitration Online database has been updated. The following six new e-book titles have recently been added:

  • González-Bueno, C., 40 under 40 International Arbitration, Madrid, Dykinson, 2018.
    The book addresses a wide range of topics covering an entire life-cycle of arbitration from drafting of arbitration clauses to enforcement of annulled arbitral awards. These chapters also focus on arbitration efficiency and tools to achieve it, such as dispositive motions and emergency relief, and discuss problems of governing law in arbitration, human rights, and determination of damages.
  • Frischknecht, A.A. (et al.), Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards and Judgments in New York, Alphen aan den Rijn, Kluwer Law International, 2018.
    Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards and Judgments in New York, more thoroughly than any other source, shows practitioners how to navigate the enforcement landscape in New York. A favorable arbitral award or judgment at the end of a dispute holds little value unless the prevailing party is able to enforce it, and this book provides an in-depth analysis of all aspects of enforcement and execution, covering U.S. civil procedure, statutes, and case law on enforcement of foreign arbitral awards and judgments, the nuances of the New York courts’ interpretations of the New York and Panama Conventions on arbitral award enforcement, and the practicalities of ultimately obtaining payment on a foreign award or judgment. New York is a leading global financial center known for its pro-enforcement policies and the powerful discovery tools it makes available to creditors. No other resource explores the current state of the law in New York as comprehensively as this book.
  • Kaplan, N.T., Moser, M.J. (eds), Jurisdiction, Admissibility and Choice of Law in International Arbitration: Liber Amicorum Michael Pryles, Alphen aan den Rijn, Kluwer Law International, 2018.
    Jurisdiction, Admissibility and Choice of Law in International Arbitration, as the name suggests, discusses the jurisdiction, admissibility and choice of law provisions applied in the arbitration. These three elements play a prominent role in administering arbitration proceedings and are oft-cited in several awards and court decisions, particularly in cases transcending boundaries. In light of the growing demand for international arbitration, there is a need for literature to discuss these elements and analyse how they are applied across various jurisdictions. Although there are books available on each of these factors separately, this book specializes in analysing all these three aspects together. This book is a collection of essays in honour of the distinguished international lawyer Michael Pryles, who launched a meteoric career as an arbitrator after many years of teaching and writing on conflicts of law and other topics and made a mark on arbitral law and practice that is recognized worldwide.
  • Kovács, C., Lew, J.D.M., Attribution in International Investment Law, Alphen aan den Rijn, Kluwer Law International, 2018.
    Attribution in International Investment Law is the first in-depth book on attribution in international investment law analysing the treatment of attribution in applicable legal instruments and investment arbitration jurisprudence worldwide. The term ‘attribution’ refers to the means by which it is ascertained whether the State is involved in a dispute governed by international law. The notion of attribution is primarily used to determine if the State is responsible for the wrongful conduct of persons or entities with links to the State. In the context of international investment law, the exponentially growing arbitration jurisprudence arising from international investment agreements, especially bilateral investment treaties, reflects the extent and risk of attribution determined in investment relationships that often involve State enterprises. This book provides an extensive review of the application of special or customary rules of attribution for the purposes of State responsibility in investor-State disputes.
  • Onyema, E., Rethinking the Role of African National Courts in Arbitration, Alphen aan den Rijn, Kluwer Law International, 2018.
    Rethinking the Role of African National Courts in Arbitration provides a remarkably thorough overview of the relation of courts and arbitration in the African continent. This book documents the Second SOAS Arbitration in Africa Conference held in Lagos in June 2016. With the increase in commercial transactions, both within the fifty-four independent African States and at international level, it has become apparent that most of the legal framework for arbitration across the continent requires reform. Accordingly, in recent years, as this first in-depth treatment of arbitration in Africa shows, jurisprudence from national courts of various African jurisdictions demonstrates that the courts are becoming more pro-arbitration and judges increasingly understand that their role is to support or complement the arbitral process.
  • Yifei, L., Judicial Review of Arbitration: Law and Practice in China, Alphen aan den Rijn, Kluwer Law International, 2018.
    Judicial Review of Arbitration covers issues that arise at all stages of the enforcement application process focusing mainly on various challenges and defenses regarding the enforcement of foreign and domestic arbitral awards. This book discusses concepts and cases in commercial arbitration and judicial review. International commercial arbitration relies on the possibility of enforcing arbitral decisions against recalcitrant parties. In China, a crucial world market, where the annual arbitration caseload has reached 200,000 and where arbitration is evolving, authorities attach great importance to judicial review of arbitration. This is the first book to address issues concerning the recognition and enforcement of arbitral awards under applicable law in “Greater China”—the People’s Republic of China (PRC), Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macao—describing and analyzing the effect of judicial review on a wealth of recent issues and cases.

Kluwer Arbitration Online covers both primary and secondary resources. The database contains the major international agreements, rules, and institutional information available in current international arbitration and investment arbitration. The database also includes case law of awards, notes, commentary, institutional rules, model clauses from leading publications, book reviews, organizations, national laws and national rules of several countries, events, newsletter, blogs, and even some submissions or interim orders under various arbitral regimes related to international arbitration and investment arbitration.
