This book, The Interpretation and Uniformity of the UNCITRAL Model Law on International Commercial Arbitration: Focusing on Australia, Hong Kong and Singapore, serves to develop a standard or benchmark for the UNCITRAL Model Law (UML) objective of uniformity.
Numerous jurisdictions worldwide have augmented their ratification of the New York Convention of 1958 with the UML, which takes a giant step forward towards global uniformity in legal application and understanding of the arbitration process. The book, using the relevant legislation and case law of Hong Kong, Singapore, and Australia, considers whether a uniform approach to implementation of the UML and its interpretation is being achieved across those jurisdictions.
The author’s methodological tools are eminently adaptable to other jurisdictions. What’s in this book: Throughout this book emphasis is placed on Article 34. The study considers issues such as:-
In addition, the Internationalist Ratio test for applied uniformity and the application of that method to the courts’ decisions in Australia, Hong Kong and Singapore are discussed.

How will this help you: This book considers whether the Model Law has succeeded in its aim of achieving uniformity. As a guide, both theoretical and practical, this book serves to clarify the interpretation of the UML, and thereby, enables the usage by the academics and states for testing courts approach to the UML.
