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. 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. 


THE ICCA REPORTS

The ICCA Reports publish occasional papers prepared by ICCA interest groups and project groups, in the hope that they will stimulate discussion and debate in our field.


The ICCA Reports No. 1: Young ICCA Guide on Arbitral Secretaries

As cases have become more complex and amounts in dispute have increased, the open use and ready acceptance of arbitral secretaries has grown. For most arbitral tribunals, the secretary takes on many tasks beyond the purely administrative - a development that some view as controversial. Young ICCA formed the Task Force on the Use and Appointment of Arbitral Secretaries to consider the views of the international arbitration community on the issue of arbitral secretaries and to develop a transparent and robust approach to their use and appointment. This approach is codified in the Young ICCA Guide on Arbitral Secretaries.

The ICCA Reports No. 2: The ICCA Drafting Sourcebook for Logistical Matters in Procedural Orders

The ICCA Drafting Sourcebook for Logistical Matters in Procedural Orders is a collection of boilerplate clauses that we invite you to consider, copy or adapt for use in your arbitral proceedings. Prepared by a Drafting Committee of ICCA members, the ICCA Sourcebook is our attempt to make the language of procedural orders available to a wider audience. The ICCA Sourcebook covers only logistical issues: matters that tend not to be addressed by arbitration rules and laws. It is not a best practices guide - instead we hope you will find it a helpful starting point for your own drafting.

The ICCA Reports No. 3: ASIL-ICCA Task Force Report on Issue Conflicts in Investor-State Arbitration

This Volume of the ICCA Reports publishes the Report of the Joint Task Force on Issue Conflicts in Investor-State Arbitration established in November 2013 between ICCA and the American Society of International Law’s Howard M. Holtzmann Center. The Task Force was composed of a diverse group of leading experts from a wide range of professional backgrounds, including arbitrators, counsel, members of arbitral institutions, and academics. The Report was prepared by the Task Force Co-Chairs, Laurence Boisson de Chazournes and John R. Crook, with the assistance of reporters Christian Leathley, Ina Popova, and Ruth Teitelbaum. It is based on the work of the Task Force, comments received on a publicly available discussion draft of the Report, and multiple public consultations over a two-and-a-half year period. We hope that the Report will assist all stakeholders not only in the evaluation and practical resolution of potential challenges, but also in reflecting on the fundamentals of the investor-State arbitration system itself.
