Maxwell Lectures: Res judicata and the ‘could have been ‘claims
Res judicata is one of the most complex topics in international arbitration.

The purpose of this webinar is to review all the major issues that it raises, many of which do not receive a unanimous answer: in particular, what law should arbitrators apply when they are confronted to a res judicata issue - as is more often the case - under what conditions does res judicata apply; what is the scope of res judicata; and if an award is not res judicata, what value should be given to it by other arbitrators. Even more fundamentally, there have been debates these recent years on whether res judicata should be narrowly applied or whether it should be recognised a broad scope, extending for example to the “could have been claims”, claims that could have been included in the original procedure – but were not – and are the object of a second procedure.

This approach prevails in various jurisdictions. Its application in international arbitration has been advocated by many scholars. It has also been followed by various arbitral tribunals.
