Pravdina A.A. - Phenomenon of delocalization of international commercial arbitration pp. 7-18


Abstract: The article discusses the phenomenon of delocalization of international commercial arbitration, its correlation with national law and order. The author analyzes various concepts of the idea of international commercial arbitration, the degree of autonomy of international arbitration, in particular the subject of analysis covers such issues as interference of national courts in the arbitration process, recognition of foreign arbitral awards and arbitrability of international commercial disputes. Special attention is paid to the study of the legal nature of international commercial arbitration as a specific form of justice. As methods of research, a comparative legal method, an analytical method, and a method of logical generalizations are used. With the help of these methods, the author formulates the definition of delocalization, which refers to the formation of a transnational legal regime that is not bound by national legal orders, but formed on their basis, the tendency to an absolutely independent autonomous regime. Thus, despite the fact that the independent nature of international commercial arbitration lies in its nature, along with the principle of autonomy of the will of the parties and contractual nature, arbitration cannot be completely independent of national legal orders, since they are the basis of its origin.

Abstract: Indian-Ocean Rim Association: history of development, institutional framework, and spheres of activity This article examines the international sub-regional organization – Indian-Ocean Rim Association, its institutional structure, history of establishment, impact upon national legislation of the member-states, key directions of activity, and projects. Cooperation of countries within the framework of the Indian-Ocean Rim Association was originally initiated due the need for resolving certain of issues (food shortage; provision of security; financial, energy, and environmental resources), and at current stage does not cover the general issues of economic integration, but rather touches upon the sectoral regional cooperation (for example, protection of ocean resources, etc.) realizes in the context of specialized programs, as well as in form of direct cooperation between the separate member-states. Efficiency of the work is limited by the low budget of the organization, which mostly consists of investments of the third parties (countries of the European Union and other international or regional organizations). Peculiarity of this sub-regional organization lies in the fact that since the moment of establishments of the Indian-Ocean Rim Association, it has always worked with the system of the United Nations, but the traditional partnership has developed only in recent years, which results in the work of the Association with almost all specialized institutions of the United Nations.

Kurbanov R.A. - Eurasian law in law system of the Russian Federation pp. 45-65


Abstract: At present time, the transition to multipolarity and failure of the idea of unipolar world is an undisputable fact. Under such circumstances, the regional integration process acquire special importance, becoming an intrinsic part of evolution. Due to the intensified geopolitical competition, rapid creation of the new regional economic, social, military political, and legal spaces alongside the multi-format organizations, Russia inevitably faces the task of reconsideration and correlation of the existing directions of regional cooperation, development of the new multi-vector policy, primarily in the Eurasian space. Crucial role in the process of achieving the set goals belongs to law, which manifests as a regulator of the relations at the national and multinational levels. In such context, the universal concept of Eurasian law is the key instrument that reflects various aspect in development of the integration process in Eurasian region. The article represents the author’s concept of formation of the Eurasian law based on the analysis of doctrinal approaches that reveal the theoretical legal grounds, genesis, main features and peculiarities of the Eurasian law as a part of international law. The development of Eurasian law will undoubtedly conduce the promotion and propaganda of Eurasian values around the world and increase of the role of Eurasian pole on the international arena.
