Arbitrage commercial international

Introduction

International Arbitration | Research Guide International Law

L'arbitrage commercial international est une méthode de règlement des différends privés dans lequel les parties à un contrat commercial international conviennent que leurs litiges seront tranchés par une ou plusieurs personnes privées, à savoir les arbitres, plutôt que par un tribunal. La décision de l'arbitre/des arbitres est définitive et obligatoire pour les parties en vertu de leur accord initial de recourir à l'arbitrage. Dans le cas où la sentence arbitrale n'est pas exécutée par la partie défaillante, l'exécution de cette sentence peut être ordonnée suite à une procédure devant une juridiction nationale.

  • Bell, G.F. (ed.), The UNCITRAL Model Law and Asian Arbitration Laws: Implementation and Comparisons, Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2018. [e-book]

    Bell, G.F. (ed.), The UNCITRAL Model Law and Asian Arbitration Laws: Implementation and Comparisons, Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2018

    In the Asia-Pacific, thirty-eight jurisdictions have adopted the UNCITRAL Model Law on International Commercial Arbitration. This book looks at how the text and the principles of the Model Law have been implemented (or not) in key Asian jurisdictions. Most of the jurisdictions covered in this book have declared that they have adopted the Model Law but often with significant modifications. Even when jurisdictions adopt some provisions of the Model Law verbatim, their courts may have interpreted these provisions in a manner inconsistent with their goals and with how they are interpreted internationally. When a jurisdiction has not adopted the Model Law, the chapter compares its legislation to the Model Law to determine whether it is consistent with its principles. Each chapter follows the structure of the Model Law allowing the reader to easily compare the arbitration laws of different jurisdictions on each topic.

  • Wang, F.F., Online Arbitration, Abingdon, Oxon, New York, NY, Informa Law from Routledge, 2018.

    Wang, F.F., Online Arbitration, Abingdon, Oxon, New York, NY, Informa Law from Routledge, 2018.

    Innovative initiatives for online arbitration are needed to aid in resolving cross-border commercial and consumer disputes in the EU, UK, US and China. This book provides a comparative study of online dispute resolution (ODR) systems and a model of best practices, taking into consideration the features and characteristics of various practical experiences/examples of ODR services and technological development for ODR systems and platforms. The book begins with a theoretical approach, looking into the challenges in the use of online arbitration in commercial transactions and analysing the potential adoption of technology-assisted arbitration (e.g. Basic ODR systems and Intelligent/Advanced ODR systems) in resolving certain types of international commercial and consumer disputes. It then investigates the legal obstacles to adopting ODR by examining the compatibility of technology with current legislation and regulatory development. Finally, it suggests appropriate legal and technological measures to promote the recognition of ODR, in particular online arbitration, for cross-border commercial and consumer disputes.

  • González-Bueno, C. (ed.), 40 under 40 International Arbitration, Madrid, Dykinson, 2018. [e-book]

    González-Bueno, C. (ed.), 40 under 40 International Arbitration, Madrid, Dykinson, 2018.

    (...) This book brings together forty authors who are among the most promising rising stars in international arbitration. The topics elected by the authors go to the fundamentals of arbitration, such as due process, independence and impartiality the role of good faith, and human rights. The book also addresses  in a talented and often innovative way novel questions such as the role of psychology in arbitration, cognitive biases, third-party funding or the way in which technology will transform our profession in the years to come. My only wish is to see further editions of this remarkable book, and to see more authors from Africa and Asia amongst its future authors. I have no doubt that Carlos González-Bueno will heed this call. We should all be grateful to him for this remarkable initiative, which will greatly contribute to open the door to the new generation of arbitrators. (Alexis Mourre)

  • Reyes, A., and W. Gu (eds.), The Developing World of Arbitration: A Comparative Study of Arbitration Reform in the Asia Pacific, Portland, OR, Hart, 2018.

    Reyes, A., and W. Gu (eds.), The Developing World of Arbitration : A Comparative Study of Arbitration Reform in the Asia Pacific, Portland, OR, Hart, 2018.

    This book provides an up-to-date and comprehensive analysis of the ways in which arbitration law and practice have recently been reformed in Asia Pacific jurisdictions. Leading contributors across the Asia Pacific region analyze twelve major jurisdictions representing varying patterns and degrees of development, whether driven from top down, bottom up, or by some hybrid impetus. Setting the arbitration systems and reforms of each investigated jurisdiction in the context of its economic, political, and judicial dynamics, this book presents, for the first-time, a cross-jurisdiction comparative and contextual study of the developing world of arbitration in the Asia Pacific and contributes to comparative international arbitration literature from an Eastern perspective. It also aims to identify an Asia Pacific model of arbitration modernization and predicts future trajectories of development and challenge in light of the ever increasing competition between Eastern- and Western-based arbitration centers.

  • Amado, J.D., J.S. Kern and M.D. Rodriguez, Arbitrating the Conduct of International Investors, Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2018.

    Investment arbitration has emerged from modest beginnings and matured into an established presence in international law. However, in recent years it has drifted from the reciprocal vision of its founders. This volume serves as a comprehensive guide for those who wish to reform international investment law from within, seeking a return to the mutuality of access that is in arbitration's essence. A detailed toolset is provided for enhancing the access of host States and their nationals to formal resolution mechanisms in foreign investment disputes. It concludes by offering model texts to achieve greater reciprocity and access to justice in the settlement of disputes arising from international investment initiatives. The book will appeal to all those interested in the future of international investment law, including an international audience of scholars, government officials, private sector actors, and private citizens alike, and including diverse constituencies, communities, and collectives of host State nationals.

  • Piers, M., and C. Aschauer (eds.), Arbitration in the Digital Age: The Brave New World of Arbitration, Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2018.

    Piers, M., and C. Aschauer (eds.), Arbitration in the Digital Age: The Brave New World of Arbitration, Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2018.

    Arbitration in the Digital Age analyses how technology can be efficiently and legitimately used to further sound arbitration proceedings. The contributions, from a variety of arbitration scholars, report on current developments, predict future trends, and assesses their impact from a practical, legal, and technical point of view. The book also discusses the relationship between arbitration and the Internet and analyses how social media can affect arbitrators and counsel's behaviour. Furthermore, it analyses the validity of electronic arbitration and awards, as well as Online Arbitration (OArb). The volume establishes, on a very practical level, how technology could be used by arbitration institutions, arbitrators, parties to an arbitration and counsel. This book will be of special interest to arbitrators and lawyers involved in international commercial arbitration.

  • Najjar, N., Arbitration and International Trade in the Arab Countries, Leiden, Brill Nijhoff, 2018.

    Najjar, N., Arbitration and International Trade in the Arab Countries, Leiden, Brill Nijhoff, 2018.

    The author has assembled a masterful compendium of arbitration law in the Arab countries. A true study of comparative law in the purest sense of the term, the work puts into perspective the solutions retained in the various laws concerned and highlights both their convergences and divergences. Focusing on the laws of sixteen States, the author examines international trade arbitration in the MENA region and assesses the value of these solutions in a way that seeks to guide a practice which remains extraordinarily heterogeneous. The book provides an analysis of a large number of legal sources, court decisions as well as a presentation of the attitude of the courts towards arbitration in the States studied. Traditional and modern sources of international arbitration are examined through the prism of the two requirements of international trade, freedom and safety, the same prism through which the whole law of arbitration is studied. The book thus constitutes an indispensable guide to any arbitration specialist called to work with the Arab countries, both as a practitioner and as a theoretician.
