This article elucidates the general meaning, concept, and scope of the legal doctrine of ‘force majeure’. It deals briefly with the concept and application of force majeure in the United Arab Emirates and addresses specifically whether, and if so, and when economic recession can amount to a force majeure excuse. Furthermore, the article also explains the application and impact of the ‘catch-all’ phrases that are used to define force majeure in many prevailing agreements, which are the subject matter of disputes today.
