Droit international de procédure


International Law of Procedure - Research Guide International Law

Le droit international de procédure (civile) fait partie du droit international privé et concerne principalement les matières suivantes. Tout d'abord la compétence des juridictions nationales dans les différends internationaux civils et commerciaux, et les immunité de juridiction. Ensuite la reconnaissance et l'exécution des décisions des tribunaux étrangers. La Convention de Bruxelles de 1968 sur la reconnaissance et l'exécution des jugements étrangers constitue le début d'un programme d'harmonisation du droit de procédure au sein de l'Union européenne, et est l'un des efforts les plus aboutis dans ce domaine. Les tentatives d'harmonisation au niveau international par l'Institut international d'harmonisation du droit privé (UNIDROIT) et l'Institut du droit américain (ALI) a abouti aux principes ALI/UNIDROIT de procédure civile transnationale de 2004.

  • García-Bolívar, O. and H. Otero (eds.), Recognition and Enforcement of International Commercial Arbitral Awards in Latin America: Law, Practice and Leading Cases, Leiden; Boston, Brill Nijhoff, 2015.

    The editors of Recognition and Enforcement of International Commercial Arbitral Awards in Latin America: Law, Practice and Leading Cases present a country-by-country review of the law, arbitral practice and leading cases on the recognition and enforcement of international commercial arbitral awards in the region. In a global economy where arbitration has become standard for dispute resolution between commercial entities of different nationalities, the enforcement of international commercial arbitral awards in local jurisdictions is the ultimate bottom-line. Yet even with international conventions in place to facilitate the process, practical information on how Latin American courts enforce international commercial arbitral awards is limited. Organized by country, each chapter provides a relevant overview and guide to the substantive and procedural practice in the jurisdiction. In contrast to other sources of information and databases, the book provides excerpts of leading cases, analyses of relevant laws and international treaties and descriptions of local practice.

  • Bareiss, A., Pflichtenkollisionen im transnationalen Beweisverkehr : Offenbarungspflichten im Zivilprozessrecht der USA und Offenbarungsverbote nach deutschem und europäischem Recht, Tübingen, Mohr Siebeck, 2014.

    Die Anzahl deutscher Unternehmen, die in den USA verklagt werden, hat in den vergangenen Jahrzehnten stetig zugenommen. Häufig befinden sich die Unternehmen in einem Dilemma: Das US-amerikanische Zivilprozessrecht verpflichtet sie, während einer pre-trial discovery Informationen zu offenbaren, die nach deutschem und europäischem Recht Offenbarungsverboten unterliegen.
    Andreas Bareiß stellt die Rechtslage nach deutschem, europäischem und US-amerikanischem Recht dar. Dabei konzentriert er sich auf Offenbarungspflichten, die sich aus den US Federal Rules of Civil Procedure ergeben und Offenbarungsverbote, die aus dem allgemeinen Datenschutz, dem Fernmeldegeheimnis und dem Bankgeheimnis resultieren. Er untersucht Abwehrstrategien und Schutzmaßnahmen, die betroffene Unternehmen in Deutschland und den USA ergreifen können. Schließlich erarbeitet der Autor einen eigenen Ansatz zur grundlegenden Lösung des rechtlichen Dilemmas.

  • Borchers, P.J., Jurisdiction and Private International Law, Cheltenham / Northampton, Edward Elgar, 2014

    In an increasingly globalized and digitized world, transactions, communications and data flow freely across national borders. When lawsuits arise as a result of those trans-border events, the question of which court or courts have jurisdiction and can provide the appropriate forum becomes critical. This two-volume collection provides a survey of personal jurisdiction across both time and legal systems. It includes articles ranging from the early 20th century to present day and to the problems created by jurisdiction in cyberspace. It also examines the jurisdictional premises of major common law countries and those in the civilian tradition. With an original introduction by the editor, these comprehensive volumes will appeal to scholars and practitioners alike.

  • Vorburger, S., International Arbitration and Cross-Border Insolvency: Comparative Perspectives, Alphen aan den Rijn, Wolters Kluwer, 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. This book will serve as a source of inspiration as well as a reference and provide a clearly marked path to an effective synthesis in this complex field.

  • Huang, J., Interregional Recognition and Enforcement of Civil and Commercial Judgments: Lessons For China From US and EU Law, Oxford/Portland, Hart Publishing, 2014.

    Judgment recognition and enforcement (JRE) between the US states, between EU Member States, and between mainland China, Hong Kong and Macao, are all forms of 'interregional JRE'. This extensive comparative study of the three most important JRE regimes focuses on what lessons China can draw from the US and the EU in developing a multilateral JRE arrangement for mainland China, Hong Kong and Macao.Mainland China, Hong Kong and Macao share economic, geographical, cultural, and historical proximity to one another. The policy of 'One Country, Two Systems' also provides a quasi-constitutional regime for the three regions. However, there is no multilateral JRE scheme among them, as there is in the US and the EU; and it is harder to recognise and enforce sister-region judgments in China than in the US and the EU. The book analyses the status quo of JRE in China and explores its insufficiencies; it proposes a multilateral JRE arrangement for Chinese regions to alleviate current JRE difficulties; and it also provides solutions for the macro and micro challenges of establishing a multilateral arrangement, drawing upon the rich literature on JRE regimes found in the US and the EU.

  • Nuyts, A. and N.E. Hatzimihail (eds.), Cross-border Class Actions : The European Way, Munich, Sellier European Law Publisher, 2014

    Whether with regard to mass torts, civil-rights claims or as a means of private enforcement of antitrust and other regulatory policies: Collective redress of civil claims has been gaining in importance in Europe and worldwide. Long associated with the American model of class actions, an increasing number of EU Member States have made their own attempts at collective redress institutions. At the same time, the amendment of the Brussels I Regulation has shied away from dealing with the cross-border aspects of collective redress. In this book, a worldwide group of distinguished experts in private international law, civil procedure and regulatory law evaluate the problems of cross-border collective redress and provide proposals for a "European way" appropriate for the twenty-first century. This very topical work is, thus, indispensable for practitioners, academics, lobbyists and institutional agents.

  • Tang, Z.S., Jurisdiction and Arbitration Agreements in International Commercial Law, London; New York, Routledge, Taylor and Francis Group, 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.
