This research deals with the Transnational Civil Procedure Principles ‎adopted by the American Law Institute (ALI) and the International ‎Institute for the Unification of Private Law (Unidroit), in Rome, in 2004. ‎It emphasizes the importance of these Principles in the field of ‎international commercial arbitration; these Principles are the first ‎instrument as such that deals with civil procedure, especially because the experience of international conventions in this field was not satisfactory. ‎This research stipulates the matters addressed by the Principles. It also ‎clarifies the cases of their application, whether by the agreement of the ‎parties or by the adoption of the principles by the legislature.
