Investor-State Arbitration examines the international treaties that give investors a right to arbitration of claims, the most-commonly employed arbitration rules, and the most important elements of investor-state arbitration procedure - including tribunal composition, jurisdiction, evidence, awards, and challenges. The expert coverage includes procedural barriers to recovery, analysis of the substantive law of investment protection, and analysis of recent investor-state arbitral jurisprudence.
"An excellent and challenging work, covering all aspects of an increasingly important and provocative field. The authors have combined a clear, logical structure and accessible text with thoughtful treatment of all major (and some other) topics. Anyone studying or teaching international investment arbitration should use this book."
Gary Born, author of International Commercial Arbitration (2009) and International Arbitration: Cases and Materials (2010); Wilmer Cutter Pickering Hale and Dorr LLP, Chair, International Arbitration Group
"This is an important book treating important subjects which have become the subject of international controversy as well as concern. The authors are experts in the field who combine the experience of practitioners with the insights of professors."
