This thesis concerns the implementation of the 1958 New York Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards (henceforth, NYC). It addresses some contemporary problems associated with the implementation of the NYC and considers the Arab Gulf states (henceforth, GCC states) as a case study to illustrate these problems. The thesis first examines how different judicial interpretations of the NYC provisions may weaken the efficiency of the well-established legal framework that regulates the recognition and enforcement of foreign arbitral awards as established by the NYC, and developed by the practice of many jurisdictions during the last fifty years. Following this, it examines whether the laws and court decisions on the NYC in the GCC states are compatible with the best standards of international practice in this field.
