The Center is glad to announce the publication of the book entitled “Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards: A Concise Guide to the New York Convention’s Uniform Regime”, authored by the Center’s Director, Professor Franco Ferrari, together with Dr. Friedrich Rosenfeld, Global Adjunct Professor at NYU Paris and Partner at the Hamburg based law firm Hanefeld, and Professor Charles T. Kotuby, Professor of Practice and Executive Director of the Center for International Legal Education at the University of Pittsburgh.
The book analyses case law from major arbitration jurisdictions in view of examining the New York Convention’s scope of application, the duty to recognize and enforce arbitration agreements and arbitral awards as well as its limitations, the grounds for refusal related to jurisdiction, the grounds for refusal related to proper notice and the ability to present one’s case, the grounds for refusal related to procedure, the grounds for refusal related to the award’s status under the #law applicable to it, as well as the grounds for refusal related to public policy, and the procedure and formal requirements for recognition.
Combining insight from arbitration practice with perspectives from private international law, the book underlines the importance of the Convention being a treaty of international law, arguing that this entails a requirement to autonomously interpret the key concepts it relies on. However, the book also shows where municipal laws are relevant and discusses the private international law principles through which these instances can be identified.
Addressing one of the core treaties of international arbitration, this book is a useful reading for practitioners and judges alike.
