International Arbitral Jurisdiction analyzes the jurisdictional powers of international arbitral tribunals in areas of fundamental importance. The volume clarifies how tribunals have approached problems in consensual arrangements for submission to tribunals, and describes the general principles that have emerged. The text also examines special aspects of the jurisdiction of the Iran United States Claims Tribunal, which has a distinctive character in the context of modern international relations.
International Arbitral Jurisdiction is a valuable, comprehensive and timely addition to the literature on international arbitration. It is intended to be a companion text to two preceding volumes on international jurisdiction by the same author, namely
Jurisdiction of International Tribunals (2003) and
Jurisdiction of Specific International Tribunals (2009).
