Reaching past the secrecy so often met in arbitration, the second edition of this commentary explains clearly and fully the workings of the UNCITRAL Rules of Arbitral Procedure recommended for use in 1976 by the United Nations. This new edition fully takes account of the revised Rules adopted in 2010 while maintaining coverage of the original Rules where these remain relevant. The differences between the old and the new Rules are clearly indicated and explained. Pulling together difficult to obtain sources from the Iran-United States Claims Tribunal, arbitrations under Chapter 11 of the North American Free Trade Agreement, and ad hoc arbitrations, it illuminates the shape the UNCITRAL Rules take in practice. The authors cogently critique that practice in the light of the negotiating history of the rules and solutions adopted by the other major private rules of arbitral procedure. To aid the specialist in the field, the practice of these various tribunals is extensively extracted and reproduced. Rich both in its analysis and sources, this text is indispensable for those working in or studying international arbitration.

Review(s) from previous edition
"No one involved in an international arbitration can afford to be without this Commentary. This Commentary, the work of three former legal assistants at the Iran-United States Claims Tribunal (each since risen to important public duties in the field), exhaustively analyzes each Article of the Rules, providing pertinent negotiating history as well as a synopsis of every known ruling interpreting it, and conveniently includes generous excerpts from those rulings, thus sparing one the need to hunt down the original. Inevitably, this wealth of illuminated precedent has relevance for other arbitration regimes, too. Hence my advice: Don't arbitrate without it! - Judge Charles N. Brower, 20 Essex Street Chambers, Judge of the Iran-United States Claims Tribunal
"The UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules are frequently used as a basis for ad hoc and institutional arbitration, notably by the Iran-US Claims Tribunal and by NAFTA Tribunals. This work is, as it states, a commentary on the Rules and an extremely valuable one. But it is much more that that, because it offers a compendium of practice under the Rules with useful extracts from decisions, reported and unreported, all presented in a systematic and accessible way. It will immediately become the standard work on its subject and an essential part of every arbitration lawyer's library." - James Crawford, Whewell Professor of International Law, University of Cambridge
"The UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules: A Commentary by Caron, Pellonpaa and Caplan is already on my keep-to-hand shelf. Their approach is long overdue: on a Rule-by-Rule basis (in pragmatic rather than numerical order) they present commentary based on the drafting history, the pioneering jurisprudence of the Iran-United States Claims Tribunal, and the "blooming practice" of NAFTA Chapter 11 and other tribunals, followed immediately by verbatim excerpts from all significant decisions.
