This study explains clearly and fully the workings of the UNCITRAL Rules of Arbitral Procedure recommended for use in 1976 by the United Nations. Pulling together difficult-to-obtain sources from the Iran-U.S. Claims Tribunal, arbitrations under Chapter 11 of the North American Free Trade Agreement , and other ad hoc arbitrations, the authors illuminate the shape the UNCITRAL Rules take in practice. The authors cogently critique that practice in light of the negotiating history of the rules and solutions adopted by the other major private rules of arbitral procedure. The practice of these various rules of arbitral procedure is faithfully extracted and reproduced to aid the specialist in yet unforeseen procedural contexts. Rich both in its analysis and sources, this text is indispensable for the international arbitration field.
