Abstract

According to the principle of party autonomy, the disputant parties may choose the law applicable to the merits of international commercial arbitration. In the absence of the parties’ choice, the arbitral tribunal shall determine this law. This article discusses the applicability of ‘rules of law’, namely the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts (UNIDROIT Principles) to the merits of the dispute. It shows whether the UNIDROIT Principles can be selected by the disputant parties or the arbitral tribunal to govern the subject of the dispute under the Arbitration Laws of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Countries as well as the Constitution and the Arbitral Rules of Procedure of the GCC Commercial Arbitration Center (GCCCAC).
