View: 6079This is the eighth volume of the "Hague Yearbook of International" "Law," which succeeds the Yearbook of the Association of Attenders and Alumni of the Hague Academy of International Law. The title "Hague Yearbook of International Law" reflects the close ties which have always existed between the AAA and the City of The Hague with its international law institutions, and indicates the Editors' intention to devote attention to developments taking place in those international law institutions, viz. the International Court of Justice, the Permanent Court of Arbitration, the Iran-United States Claims Tribunal and the Hague Conference on Private International Law. This volume contains in-depth articles on these developments (in English and French) and summaries of (aspects of) decisions rendered by the International Court of Justice, the Permanent Court of Arbitration and the Iran-United States Claims Tribunal.
A Comparative Study in Common Law and Civil Law Countries
Author: Ihab Abdel Salam Amro
Publisher: Cambridge Scholars Publishing
View: 8565This book initiates a discussion of the law and practice of recognition and enforcement of foreign arbitral awards in both common law and civil law countries. In terms of law, this book principally focuses on the New York Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards of 1958, and the harmony or clash between the New York Convention and national arbitration laws of both common law and civil law countries including the UK and the USA (as common law countries), and France, Germany and Greece (as civil law countries). In terms of practice, this book deeply and extensively examines the judicial application of the New York Convention in national courts of common law and civil law countries, and sheds light on the best practices related to the judicial application of the New York Convention, while also highlighting how future disputes can be resolved in national courts. As such, this book provides solutions for salient and recurring problems arising out of the erroneous judicial application or interpretation of the New York Convention by national courts, and encourages the adoption of a more liberal regime in favour of the recognition and enforcement of foreign arbitral awards generally, and the adoption of a more liberal interpretation of the New York Convention in national courts of both common law and civil law countries particularly. This book, which is based on more than 100 courts’ decisions from common law and civil law countries, is a valuable resource for academics, arbitrators, practicing lawyers, corporate counsels, law students and researchers interested in international commercial arbitration, as well as for business professionals involved in international trade, and those who are willing to solve their commercial disputes through arbitration.

Including a Commentary on Dutch Arbitration Law

Publisher: Kluwer Law International B.V.
View: 6141The Netherlands Arbitration Institute (NAI) is the most prestigious institute in the Netherlands for the arbitration of commercial disputes. While NAI arbitration is the dispute resolution mechanism of choice of many Dutch corporations and public entities, it is increasingly agreed on by foreign parties selecting the Netherlands as a neutral venue for their potential disputes. This excellent volume, a rule-by-rule guide to the NAI Arbitration Rules, is not only the first such handbook in English, but the most comprehensive and detailed in any language. In addition, it provides a unique commentary in English on important elements of Dutch arbitration law. Drawing on case law from arbitral tribunals and state courts and on extensive personal experience, members of the arbitration team of the Dutch law firm De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek N.V. provide in-depth commentary on each provision of the NAI Arbitration Rules and on arbitration-related court proceedings in the Netherlands under the Dutch Arbitration Act. Focusing on disputes arising from (among others) share purchase agreements, joint venture agreements, licence agreements, franchise agreements, finance agreements, contractor agreements, distribution agreements, and agreements for the sale of goods, the analysis covers such crucial factors of the NAI system as the following: the use of the list procedure for the appointment of arbitrators; the central role of the Administrator; the Dutch concept of binding advice; contractual relationships and exclusion of liability; the separability of the arbitration agreement; freedom in determining and applying rules of evidence; the mechanisms for parties to seek relief in summary arbitration proceedings; costs of arbitration; and the arbitral award, including the possibility of rectifying, supplementing and setting aside this award. The provision-by-provision analysis also compares the NAI Rules with both relevant proceedings in the Dutch state courts and, inter alia, ICC and UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules and to practice under such other rules. The authors of this matchless book have faced many questions on the NAI Arbitration Rules, advised on the interpretation and correct application of those Rules, and defended such interpretation before tribunals and courts. In this book they share their experience, insights, and expertise. Counsel for corporate clients and public entities contemplating arbitration proceedings and as well as counsel to parties in NAI proceedings or related court proceedings and will find here an incomparable guide to the NAI system and Dutch arbitration law.

View: 6749Handelsschiedsgerichte nehmen im globalen Wirtschaftsverkehr mittlerweile eine bedeutende Stellung ein. Ihr anhaltender Erfolg hat jedoch einen Preis. Anders als das durch den Öffentlichkeitsgrundsatz geprägte staatliche Zivilverfahren finden Handelsschiedsverfahren in aller Regel außerhalb der Öffentlichkeit statt, ihre Entscheidungen werden nur selten einmal öffentlich bekannt. Eine diskursive, insbesondere eine richterrechtliche Fortbildung des Rechts wird auf diese Weise weitgehend verhindert. Daraus entstehen Nachteile nicht nur für die Verfahrensbeteiligten, sondern auch für den Normbildungsprozess insgesamt. Philip Wimalasena wirbt vor diesem Hintergrund für eine größere Entscheidungstransparenz in der Handelsschiedsgerichtsbarkeit, die vor allem durch die systematische Veröffentlichung von Schiedssprüchen verwirklicht werden soll. Er analysiert die strukturellen Voraussetzungen einer solchen allgemeinen Veröffentlichungspraxis und plädiert im Ergebnis für eine anonymisierte Veröffentlichung schiedsrichterlicher Entscheidungen. Die Arbeit wurde mit dem Förderpreis der Deutschen Institution für Schiedsgerichtsbarkeit (DIS) e.V. 2015/2016 ausgezeichnet.
