1- Ismail, Mohamed AM, and Koura, Rania Adel, “International Construction Contracts Arbitration in the MENA Region”, Lambert Academic Publishing, Germany. With a foreword by Gary Born. January 2015.
This book is a fundamental guide for academics and practitioners in the construction arbitration sphere. It scrutinizes the main features, and substantive characteristics of construction contracts. It is a reference to states' agreements with private foreign entities. It subjects law and practice in the MENA region to clarify critical issues such as delay and extension of time, LDs, and many other issues relating to arbitration. Authors present useful insights on a number of complex topics relating to states' infrastructure agreements. This monograph analyzes interim measures in international arbitration from international perspectives. It highlights comparative legislation and different institutional rules. It scrutinizes Egyptian arbitration law as it is adopting UNCITRAL Model Law. Authors capture with authoritative structure the pulse and dynamics of the legal framework of construction arbitration and special difficulties such as the time bar in the FIDIC forms of contracts and in ICSID arbitration, the role of the engineer in construction contracts, and multi-party arbitration in construction agreements. Authors also provide useful insights to PPPs and BOT/BOOT agreements.
Dr Ismail was a visiting fellow at Max-Planck Institute for Comparative and International Private Law, Hamburg, 2014, to prepare for this monograph.

Using Latin American countries as a prime example of how international legislative instruments serve international investment law principles and comparing Latin American experiences where appropriate, the book demonstrates how lessons can be learned in respect of alternative dispute resolution, international commercial arbitration and investor-states arbitration.
