On November 3, 2010, the UK Supreme Court issued its decision in Dallah Real Estate & Tourism Holding Company v The Ministry of Religious Affairs, Pakistan [2010] UKSC 46. It unanimously declined to enforce an ICC award under the New York Convention. The case has raised several issues - the scope of the court's review under sec. 103(2)(b) of the Arbitration Act 1996 (Article V(1)(a) New York Convention), the doctrine of competence-competence and the application of arbitration agreements to non-signatories. The case and its impact for contracting parties will be intensively discussed in this rapid response seminar, also from a comparative and international perspective.
