This article presents an empirical analysis of the impact of the enforcement of substantive UNCITRAL Model Law principles in the Middle East region. Despite the main differences in the schools of thought and jurisdictions in the Middle East, the major conclusion is that UNCITRAL principles are applicable. As compared with data taken from legislations and case law after adopting the UNCITRAL Model Law, in an extension of the analysis, findings show a marginally significant change and deviations from the basic principles of the Model Law in these countries. Analysis of the implications of these changes from the perspective of the role played by the Model Law, shows that there was significant theoretical and practical negative impact upon the overall objectives of the law enforcement effort.
