A recent ruling of the Dubai Court of First Instance questions de novo the uae courts’ compliance with their obligations under international enforcement instruments in the enforcement of foreign arbitral awards. Following the recent trend of consolidation of the uae courts’ practice to abide by the terms of international enforcement instruments—foremost amongst them the New York Convention, this ruling marks a sudden and unwelcome setback in what commentators had believed had become a turning-point in the uae enforcement practice of foreign arbitral awards.
