This book aims to preserve and to make accessible the substantial body of Awards and Decisions rendered by the Iran–United States Claims Tribunal during the years since its establishment in 1981. The jurisprudence of this extraordinary tribunal is of much broader interest than simply to the parties before it and the two governments that created it. While copies of its hundreds of Awards and Decisions may individually be purchased from the Tribunal and have been or are being published in the Iran–United States Claims Tribunal Reports, that set of many volumes is quite expensive and may not be widely available. The book attempts to accomplish its objectives in two ways: first, by quoting from the most significant Awards and Decisions at sufficient length; and secondly, by so organizing and summarizing them as to facilitate finding complete texts relevant to any particular issue.

Keywords: Awards; Decisions; jurisprudence
