This fourth series of cases brought before the Cairo Regional Centre for International Commercial Arbitration introduces some of the most important arbitration cases involving major construction companies from Europe and the United States during the past decade.
As in previous volumes in the series, the sections on each of the seven cases include full or only slightly abridged summaries of the actual awards, with detailed commentaries. Although these awards were rendered in English; they were edited and commented by the prominent legal scholar, arbitrator, and lawyer Dr. Mohie Eldin I. Alam-Eldin.
His in-depth commentary on the cases encompasses discussion of emerging new arbitral trends and principles and new approaches to arbitration engendered by the ever-growing and changing practices and patterns of international trade.
The significance of the Cairo Regional Centre for International Commercial Arbitration, as a forward looking and innovative institution directly influencing business activity in some of the most important areas of global commerce, can hardly be overstated. This book validates and reinforces the Centre’s pivotal role, and will be of inestimable value to the international commercial arbitration community.
