La sede y el ordenamiento aplicable en el arbitraje internacional: enfoques cruzados

Publications

WilmerHale’s Claudio Salas and Maria Camila Hoyos wrote a chapter in the book “La sede y el ordenamiento aplicable en el arbitraje internacional: enfoques cruzados” (The seat and applicable law in international arbitration: intersecting approaches) published by the Center for Analysis and Dispute Resolution of the Universidad Católica del Perú, Universidad Católica San Pablo, Iberian Association of Private Law, and Estudio Mario Castillo Freyre’s Arbitration Library.  

The chapter titled “La excepción del orden público en el reconocimiento y la ejecución de laudos arbitrales en Argentina, Brasil y Colombia” (The public policy exception in the recognition and enforcement of arbitral awards in Argentina, Brazil, and Colombia) addresses the different ways in which the high courts of three Latin American jurisdictions have interpreted the scope and object of the public policy exception contained in Article V(2)(b) of the New York Convention. The authors analyze landmark cases in Argentina, Brazil, and Colombia, and they conclude that there appears to be little consensus in the region regarding the interpretation of “public policy” in the New York Convention. The authors also found that there was no causal relationship between the incorporation of the UNCITRAL Model Law in these jurisdictions and a narrower interpretation of the scope of public policy in their courts. The authors note that developing a common understanding of the scope of the public policy exception will reduce unpredictability and increase the legitimacy of arbitration in the region.
