In recent years, international arbitration procedures have made great strides to bring into line different traditions of law and practice.  However, considerable problems remain.  The aim of the new publication, Parallel State and Arbitral Procedures in International Arbitration prepared by the ICC Institute of World Business Law, is to give the reader a thorough picture of the practical issues raised by the conflicts arising when there is more than one arbitration on identical or very similar facts, and where only one party differs, and when arbitrations run in parallel with state legal proceedings.

The Issues

When a commercial arbitration takes place along with other commercial or investment arbitrations - or national court legal proceedings - a number of sensitive issues are raised, such as 

  • The same dispute can lead to contradictory awards.
  • There is a risk of arbitral forum shopping, which can generate public policy problems.
  • Issues of waiver and estoppel can arise.
There is a need for both arbitrators and practitioners to better understand these conflicts and why they need to be addressed.  The present volume lays out the issues in a practical, transparent, easy-to-understand way.
