This Article attempts to contribute to the study of international class arbitrations by providing a clear framework for discussion, an explanation of the current status, and a description of the challenges facing the development of class actions in the field of international commercial arbitration. As international arbitration is a system praised for offering a predictable and efficient mechanism to resolve transnational business disputes, it is submitted that the international commercial arbitration community should promptly implement a specific regulatory framework for class arbitrations that avoids uncertainties and addresses its special features.
