[en] This paper addresses specific quesitons in relation to the arbitral award. A first question dealt with, concerned the consequences and effects an arbitral award may have before a state court grants it exequatur. Two sub-questions are discussed : whether such award may have res judicata, and, if yes, what consequences may follow from the res judicata and second whether provisional measures may be ordered on the basis of the award before the exequatur is granted. In a second chapter, attention is devoted to the seminal question of the possibility to enforce an award which has been annulled. This is done by exploring the effects of a request for annulment on the effects of an award and then discussing the consequences the annulment proper may have on the award. Finally, the position of the award debtor is also discussed in relation to enforcement proceedings. In particular, the possibility for the debtor to file a negative declaratory action and to request to be joined in enforcement proceedings are discussed.
