The first version of the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules was endorsed by the General Assembly of the United Nations in December 1976. Now considered one of UNCITRAL's greatest successes, the rules have had an extraordinary impact on international arbitration as both instruments in their own right and as guides for others. The Iran-US Claims Tribunal, for example, employs a barely modified version of the rules for all claims, and many multilateral and bilateral foreign investment treaties adopt the UNCITRAL Rules as an arbitral procedure. The Rules are so pervasive and the consequences of the new version potentially so significant that they cannot be ignored. This commentary on the Rules brings the official documents together in one volume and includes the insights and experiences of the Working Group that are not included in the official reports.

The UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules have proved instrumental to the effective resolution of transborder, commercial, investment-treaty, and inter-State disputes. This book, by two leading scholars and practitioners whose 2006 joint report began the process that led to the first ever revision of the Arbitration Rules in 2010, and who were key contributors in the revision process at UNCITRAL thereafter, is the only article-by-article commentary of both the generic 2010 Rules and the Transparency Rules of 2013. Extensively referring to the UNCITRAL travaux préparatoires, the book considers: • the principal legislative intent behind each new or revised article – or, in respect of those articles which remain unchanged, the reasons for the absence of revision; • where an article is revised, or entirely new provisions are introduced, an explanation of the issues that the revision intended to address; and • an analysis of the discrete issues that arise in respect of each article. The authors make reference not only to academic literature and case law, but also to other commonly used Arbitration Rules and the practice under those Rules. More than a matchless guide to practice, this deeply informed resource offers a comprehensive understanding of both sets of UNCITRAL Rules. This book serves as the pre-eminent commentary and analysis on the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules and the Transparency Rules.

International investment law is in a state of evolution. With the advent of investor-State arbitration in the latter part of the twentieth century - and its exponential growth over the last decade - new levels of complexity, uncertainty and substantive expansion are emerging. States continue to enter into investment treaties and the number of investor-State arbitration claims continues to rise. At the same time, the various participants in investment treaty arbitration are faced with increasingly difficult issues concerning the fundamental character of the investment treaty regime, the role of the actors in international investment law, the new significance of procedure in the settlement of disputes and the emergence of cross-cutting issues. Bringing together established scholars and practitioners, as well as members of a new generation of international investment lawyers, this volume examines these developments and provides a balanced assessment of the challenges being faced in the field.

Applicable Law in International Investment Disputes

This book gives a comprehensive overview of all relevant aspects of the issue of applicable substantive law in the context of investor/State arbitration. It is a comparative survey of both the International Center for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) and non-ICSID arbitral practice. The applicable substantive law represents an important issue in investment disputes as it determines the rules of law that should be applied to the merits of the dispute. This study demonstrates the need for a discussion on the applicable law before examining the merits of the case, as it appears to be non-existent in most arbitral awards. The author gives an extensive survey of choice of law clauses as found in direct agreements between parties and in multilateral or bilateral investment treaties. Furthermore, the author analyzes the following issues: stabilization clauses in investment agreements, the application of the residual rule (if parties failed to agree on the applicable law), the special position of the Iran-US Claims Tribunal and various annulment decisions.

There has been an exponential rise in the use of ICA for resolving international business disputes, yet international arbitration is a scarcely regulated, specialty industry. International Commercial Arbitration: An Asia Pacific Perspective is the first book to explain ICA topic by topic with an Asia Pacific focus. Written for students and practising lawyers alike, this authoritative book covers the principles of ICA thoroughly and comparatively. For each issue it utilises academic writings from Asia, Europe and elsewhere, and draws on examples of legislation, arbitration procedural rules and case law from the major Asian jurisdictions. Each principle is explained with a simple statement before proceeding to more technical, theoretical or comparative content. Real-world scenarios are employed to demonstrate actual application to practice. International Commercial Arbitration is an invaluable resource that provides unique insight into real arbitral practice specific to the Asia Pacific region, within a global context.

Ständig will uns jemand von irgendetwas überzeugen. Statistisch betrachtet mindestens einige Hundert Mal am Tag, auch wenn wir dies gar nicht mehr wahrnehmen. Oder doch? Manchmal ist es ganz anders. Dann wird von einer Sekunde zur anderen Schwarz zu Weiß.Warum fallen wir auf manche Mittel oder Tricks herein, auch wenn wir es eigentlich besser wissen? Welche »psychologischen Keulen« werden eingesetzt? Wie kommt es, dass wir manipulierbar sind? Diese Fragen beantwortet Kevin Dutton. Er erklärt, dass sich unser Gehirn, der komplexeste Computer der Welt, manchmal in das komplexeste »Furzkissen« (O-Ton Dutton) verwandelt – auch ein Ergebnis der Evolution.
