ICCA’s Guide to the Interpretation of the 1958 New York Convention

ICCA New York Convention Guide


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.


The Guide is available in Arabic, Armenian, Burmese, Chinese, Croatian, English, Farsi, French, Georgian, Greek, Hebrew, Indonesian, Italian, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Spanish, Thai, Turkish and Vietnamese. 

“This Guide will serve as an effective tool in advancing the motto I have repeated on many occasions: Vivat, Floreat et Crescat New York Convention 1958 [may it live, grow and flourish].”
