Building upon the discussion on the validity and effects of arbitration agreements in chapter 3, this chapter examines the rules governing the jurisdiction of arbitral tribunals. It addresses a number of questions arising from the arbitral tribunal’s and the courts’ review of arbitral jurisdiction, from the implications of the principle of competence-competence to jurisdictional objections and the effects of parallel proceedings. Special attention is given to topics such as the so-called negative effect of competence-competence, the arbitration-specific lis pendens rule established in Article 186(1) bis PILA and the res judicata effect of prior arbitral or judicial decisions on jurisdiction. The chapter’s final section discusses anti-suit and anti-arbitration injunctions.
