The allocation of costs often involves various difficulties that tribunals have the challenging task to address. Most international arbitration rules confer on the Tribunal a very wide discretion as to whether costs should be awarded, to whom and in what amount. As claims for costs get larger this discretion becomes onerous. This Lecture aims to shed light on the origin of the principles underlying the allocation of the costs decision process and the major trends in international commercial and treaty arbitrations.
