This legal treatise addresses the scope and content of the principles for exemption for a party to a contract under international arbitration law (such exemptions are commonly referred to as force majeure and hardship). The author addresses the topic under a general principles of law approach. Chapters address the scope of application of general contract principles, the concept of non-performance, the force majeure excuse, and hardship, along the way examining such elements as contractual risk allocations, unforseeability of an impediment, impediments beyond the typical sphere of risk and control of the obligor, responsibility for third parties, legal impediments, involvement of states or state enterprises, the hardship threshold test, frustration of purpose, irreconcilable differences, and comparison with exemptions under domestic legal systems.
