2. Subjective and objective arbitrability
3. Status quo
4. Conclusions and recommendations
Importance of the issue of arbitrability
Arbitrability is the foundation of a pro-arbitration attitude
Arbitration is often regarded as much better than litigation for resolution of international
commercial disputes
Pro-arbitration approach of the arbitral tribunals, but more strict and formalistic approach of
the judges at the setting aside and enforcement stages
Clear prescription by law of certain category of disputes as non-arbitrable justly estop the
parties to a dispute from the right to choose dispute resolution method
Uncertainty in arbitrability of some disputes is the hardest situation, it give rise to the risks of
(i) arbitral tribunal’s conclusion of its non-competence to decide the dispute, (ii) setting aside
or (iii) denial in enforcement of the award by competent court
Importance of the issue of arbitrability
Arbitrability in CIS – it is all about uncertainty!
How can we speak about hostile to arbitration approach, when the door for arbitration is only shut
softly, but not closed completely?!
Almost any commercial dispute in the CIS may be settled by arbitration!
Why it is not pro-arbitration jurisdiction?
Subjective and objective arbitrability
“subjective arbitrability” – whether certain individuals or entities are considered unable
to submit their disputes to arbitration because of their status or function;
“objective arbitrability” – whether the subject-matter of the dispute submitted to
arbitration is not one which can be resolved by arbitration
(Emmanuel Gaillard and John Savage (eds), Fouchard Gaillard Goldman on
International Commercial Arbitration, (Kluwer Law International 1999) pp. 312-313)
Status quo – subjective arbitrability
The following cases may be referred to international commercial arbitration:
disputes resulting from contractual and other civil legal relations arising in course
of foreign trade and other forms of international economic relations, provided that
the place of business of at least one of the parties is situated abroad;
disputes arising between enterprises with foreign investment and international
associations and organizations established in the territory of Ukraine/Russia, among
themselves, disputes between their members, as well as their disputes with other
legal entities in Ukraine/Russia.
Disputes involving state and state-owned entities may be settled by international
commercial arbitration and rendered awards are enforceable.
Status quo – objective arbitrability
The category of non-arbitrable disputes is not clearly defied by the law
Real estate disputes
Ukraine: pros – right understanding of Article 77 of the Private International Law Act;
cons – wrong understanding of this provision
Russia: pros – Constitutional Court Ruling dated 26.05.2011; cons – negative court
practice prior that decision
Corporate disputes
Ukraine: pros – unclear wording of para. 2 of Article 12 of the Commercial Procedural
Code of Ukraine; cons – court practice
Russia: pros – possibility of pro-arbitration interpretation still exists; cons – Maksimov
Conclusions and recommendations
So far as the list of disputes, which cannot be settled by international commercial
arbitration, is not clearly defied, there are signs of pro-arbitration approach in the
The door for arbitration is not closed and may open at any time for any concrete
Reasons of such uncertainty as to arbitrability:
low awareness of the judges with key principles of international commercial
bad reputation of domestic arbitration;
judges desire to monopolize the right to consider the most interesting cases
(corporate, real estate etc.)
Arbitration remains the best choice in such uncertainty, however, the final choice of
appropriate dispute resolution scheme shall be made on case by case basis
