The New York Convention

The Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards, also known as the "New York Arbitration Convention" or the "New York Convention", is one of the key instruments in international arbitration. The New York Convention applies to the recognition and enforcement of foreign arbitral awards and the referral by a court to arbitration.

The www.newyorkconvention.org website gives access to information regarding the New York Convention in general, its history, its intepretation and application by the courts, a bibliography, and other relevant matters such as a "draft" for a revised Convention. 

This website also provides you with easy-to-use tools to find case law on how the courts have interpreted and applied the New York Convention's provisions (more than 2400 court decisions from more than 65 countries).  The tools consist of Consolidated Lists and a Commentary.  This information is provided in association with the International Council for Commercial Arbitration and kluwerarbitration.com.

The login is presently reserved for courses on the New York Convention, including the course on the Enforcement of Arbitral Awards at the Tsinghua University School of Law; the course on the New York Convention of 1958 at the LL.M. in International Dispute Settlement (MIDS) in Geneva; the course on International Arbitration and the New York Convention at the Georgetown University Law Center; the course on International Arbitration and the New York Convention at the University of Miami School of Law; the course on International Arbitration and the New York Convention at the National University of Singapore Faculty of Law; and the "New York Convention Road Show" for the judiciary in various Contracting States.
