Volume 14 of ICCA Congress Series, The New York Convention at 50, comprises the proceedings of the ICCA Conference held in Dublin in 2008 on the fiftieth anniversary of the 1958 New York Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards. One of the highlights of the Conference was a Plenary Session in which the world’s leading arbitration experts debated the need to revise the New York Convention. This discussion, along with the text of a preliminary draft of the revised Convention presented during the Conference, is reported in this volume.

Further Reports and Commentary explore the two main themes of the Conference: Investment Treaty Arbitration/Treaty Arbitration, with contributions on:

  • The Impact of Investment Treaty Arbitration: Identifying the Expectations, Testing the Assumptions;
  • Investment Treaty Arbitration and Commercial Arbitration: Are They Different Ball Games?
  • Remedies in Investment Treaty Arbitration: The Bottom Line; and
  • The Enforcement of Investment Treaty Awards,

and Rules-Based Solutions to Procedural Issues, with contributions on:

  • Multi-party Disputes;
  • Consolidation of Claims;
  • Summary Disposition; and
  • Provisional Measures.

The volume also includes transcripts of the Round Table Session assessing the revisions to the UNCITRAL Rules on International Commercial Arbitration and of an Open Discussion on Recent Developments in International Arbitration.
