The BCDR International Arbitration Review (the Review) is a scholarly international law journal that seeks to further an important component of BCDR's mandate by disseminating knowledge on, and increasing understanding of, the law and procedure of international dispute settlement.
Published biannually and featuring content in both Arabic and English, the Review comprises articles, case summaries and other significant reports; each issue focusing on a topic of universal interest in international arbitration, with an emphasis on relevance to the Arab Region.
The Review provides the Arab and non-Arab legal and academic communities with a perspective on developments in the field of arbitration and alternative dispute resolution in the region. It also provides a forum for practitioners and academics alike to contribute to the ongoing dialogue around international arbitration in general.
Since the first issue of the Review on the recognition and enforcement of foreign arbitral awards in the Arab states of the Gulf, the Review has covered the topics of women's voices in international arbitration; arbitration in Egypt; international investment arbitration in the Middle East; construction arbitration in the Middle East; oil and gas arbitration in the Middle East; third-party funding in international arbitration; international mediation; conflicts of interest in international arbitration; and a comprehensive review and analysis by leading practitioners of the 2017 BCDR-AAA arbitration rules spread over two issues and being a great example of international teamwork, bridging cultural, linguistic, and legal traditions.
Issues on conflicts of interest and mediation are slated for publication in 2021.
