Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the jurisprudence of international arbitral tribunals in order, particularly, to indicate what common principles have evolved pertaining to their jurisdiction and discuss the jurisdictional practice of the Iran-US Claims Tribunal. It made two preliminary observations. First, the concern is with jurisdiction in international disputes. The meaning of "international disputes" has been elucidated by me in the author's treatise Jurisdiction of International Tribunals. The jurisdiction studied here is restricted to international disputes as there explained. Second, the chapter is confined to international tribunals, as also defined there, and only to international arbitral tribunals. Arbitration generally or basically has as parties states or international organizations or such international entities. Long-term arbitral bodies of an ad hoc nature, such as the Iran-US Claims Tribunal have functioned and function successfully, though they are not permanent bodies.

Keywords: arbitration; international arbitral tribunals; international disputes; Iran-US Claims Tribunal
