Consent and party autonomy, along with the neutrality of arbitral tribunal, are the most featured distinction of arbitration vis a vis other dispute resolution methods. These fundamental features, however, might be affected by the application of unilateral economic sanctions of regional organizations (i.e. European Union) which is indeed for protecting their foreign security policy frameworks and fundamental interests.
In one hand, the arbitral tribunals have to respect the parties’ choices, namely the applicable law (which might be against the sanctions), and in the other hand, the courts are obliged to recognized the European Union sanctions as public policy and overriding mandatory provisions and accordingly, set aside or annul the arbitral awards contrary to these provisions.
Therefore, the main aim of this research project is to study of the effect of European Union economic sanctions on commercial arbitration disputes, as well as the approach of pertinent courts. The key result is that arbitral tribunals in confrontation with such sanctions as jus cogens, rely on their authorities particularly in term of applicable law, recognition and enforcement of the arbitration award.
