Comments on the text of this volume in the ICCA Reports may be directed to

The 50th anniversary conference of ICCA was the occasion for  presenting ICCA’s Guide to the Interpretation of the 1958 New York Convention. The Guide is a clear, concise yet inclusive handbook, written in plain language, on the essential aspects of the scope, interpretation and application of the Convention. Though principally aimed at judges determining applications under the Convention, the Guide, which benefits from the extensive practical and academic experience of its authors (prominent arbitrators and ICCA members) will also be of interest to students, teachers and practitioners as an introduction to the Convention.

Now available in Burmese, Chinese, English, French, Georgian, Greek, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.
