As we approach the 50th anniversary of the 1958 United Nations Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards (New York Convention), Enforcement of Arbitration Agreements and International Arbitral Awards provides the most exhaustive commentary on the fundamental aspects of the Convention. The significant legal developments and associated practice over the last 50 years have been put under the microscope by distinguished academics and practitioners in the area.

Each of the 31 chapters provides focused analysis of individual issues with the emphasis on the relevant case law from various Contracting States without ever straying from a global outlook. The book is intended to be an authoritative text for lawyers working in-house or in private practice. Its structure and depth of analysis makes it suitable for academics and essential reading for students pursuing postgraduate or research degrees that encompass elements of international dispute resolution.
