9780198258056: The Jurisprudence of the Iran-United States Claims Tribunal: An Analysis of the Decisions of the Tribunal

This book charts the work of the Iran-US Claims Tribunal which was established in the wake of the breakdown of relations between the United States and Iran after the Iranian revolution in 1979. The seizure of the US Embassy and US assets in Iran created a rift between the US and Iran which led to the expulsion and expropriation of US property. The US retaliated by freezing all Iranian assets in America including funds held in US banks. The Tribunal which was created after extensive international negotiations involving other governments was funded by the Iranian Government to settle all outstanding claims between Government and Government, US nationals against the Iranian Government and Iranian nationals against the US Government. The tribunal was divided into three chambers in the Hague: US, Iran and a neutral judge sat on each of the Tribunals. The work of the Tribunal is of great interest to international lawyers and arbitrators because it is a large scale international Tribunal trying to deal with the settlement of large claims against governments on behalf of other governments and domestic citizens. The application of the principles developed by the Tribunal to other areas of international law is considerable so the book will be of general interest to a wide range of international lawyers.

From the Back Cover:

This important new book seeks to preserve and to make accessible the substantial body of Awards and Decisions rendered by the Iran-United States Claims Tribunal during the years since it was established in 1981. The jurisprudence of this extraordinary Tribunal is of much broader interest than simply to the parties before it and the two governments that created it. Its hundreds of Awards and Decisions may be individually consulted (there are twenty-seven volumes so far) but hitherto there has been no detailed analytical guide through the vast published work of the Tribunal. The book provides a two-fold service. Firstly, it quotes from the most significant Awards and Decisions at sufficient length so that both their substance and the reasoning of the Tribunal can be understood from access to the present volume alone. Secondly, it organizes and summarizes the decisions to facilitate finding complete texts relevant to any particular issue. Judge Aldrich also recounts the sometimes tumultuous history of the Tribunal and provides insights into its accomplishments and its shortcomings. The book will be of interest to any international lawyer, but particularly those involved in international arbitral practice and those interested in judicial remedies and the pacific settlements of disputes.

About the Author:
