Article 38 of the Statute of the International Court of Justice defines "international law" to include not only "custom" and "convention" between States but also "the general principles of law recognized by civilized nations" within their municipal legal systems. In 1953, Bin Cheng wrote his seminal book on general principles, identifying core legal principles common to various domestic legal systems across the globe. This monograph summarizes and analyzes the general principles of law and norms of international due process, with a particular focus on developments since Cheng's writing. The aim is to collect and distill these principles and norms in a single volume as a practical resource for international law jurists, advocates, and scholars. The information contained in this book holds considerable importance given the growth of inter-state intercourse resulting in the increased use of general principles over the past 60 years. General principles can serve as rules of decision, whether in interpreting a treaty or contract, determining causation, or ascertaining unjust enrichment. They also include a core set of procedural requirements that should be followed in any adjudicative system, such as the right to impartiality and the prohibition on fraud. Although the general principles are, by definition, basic and even rudimentary, they hold vital importance for the rule of law in international relations. They are meant not to define a rule of law, but rather the rule of law.

Traditionally the issues concerning the exercise of administrative powers by public authorities were considered a type of national enclave. It was the responsibility of the state to ensure that adequate procedural safeguards were in place to prevent the government from interfering with the rights of its citizens. During the last few decades, however, a variety of sets of rules regarding procedural due process has developed to govern the conduct of those public authorities who operate on a regional or world regulatory footing, such as the European Union and the World Trade Organization. Analysing the procedural due process requirements applicable to administrative procedure beyond the borders of the States, this volume demonstrates how regional and global regulatory regimes impose requirements that are strikingly similar to those set out by the most developed legal systems of the world. The book argues that such requirements of administrative procedure are justified not only by the traditional concerns for the protection of individual interests against the misuse of power by public authorities, but also by other values, such as good governance and cooperation between public authorities. Finally, the book conceptualizes such rules as legal requirements which arbitral tribunals and other agencies should respect when interpreting standards of justice.

Legal writing has often explored the link between arbitration and other fields of law. But the interaction between arbitration and insolvency has received little attention. This study examines this interaction through the applicable laws and provisions in England, France, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United States. As a component in the identification and scrutiny of the relationship between insolvency proceedings and commercial arbitration, this book assesses the nature and character of both types of proceedings and clarifies the applicable terminology. Questions probed include: Whether the commencement of insolvency proceedings may influence other legal proceedings; What importance the provisions of insolvency may have for commercial arbitration, as seen from the point of view of national courts exercising their support and supervisory roles in arbitration; and To what extent the solutions in the legal systems covered converge or differ and why. The author examines a wide range of specific facets of the topic, in the contexts of both domestic and international arbitration, including arbitration agreement validity, arbitrability, public policy, the presentation of parties, and due process.
