International Arbitration : legal framework.

Russia is a party to the Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards of 1958 (the New York Convention) and the European Convention on International Commercial Arbitration of 1961.

The primary source of the Russian international arbitration law is the law 'On International Commercial Arbitration', enacted on July 7, 1993, which is almost identical to the UNCITRAL Model Law.
