Until 1990s most countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) were largely unfamiliar with the concept of international arbitration. During the Soviet period and through early 1990s, only a handful of Soviet local enterprises engaged in international arbitration. The situation has dramatically changed since then. With the growth of the wealth of these countries, their increased role in world trade, and the growth of foreign investments in the region, CIS-related arbitration constitutes a significant and rising part of the global market of international arbitration. This presentation will first address the features of international commercial arbitration in the region, examining the historical background, legislative framework, common and distinctive features of arbitration in CIS, including issues of arbitrability, public policy, and enforcement of arbitral awards. The second part will deal with the features of the investor-state arbitration involving CIS countries.
