Substantive Law in Investment Treaty Arbitration is a clear analysis of previously unexplored aspects of investment arbitration. This second edition of what has rapidly become the pre-eminent work on the role of municipal law in investment treaty arbitration is justified not only by the accelerating appearance of investment treaty awards, but also by the continuing, serious problems in the application of international law by investment treaty arbitral tribunals. The book considers key matters of substantive law in which a renvoi to municipal law must be conducted if an investment treaty tribunal is to reach sound results under international law.
What’s in this book:
The author has maintained the overall structure of the first edition and added a new chapter on Article 42 of the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes Convention. The book focuses on the role of municipal law in providing the substance for concepts such as contracts, property rights, and shareholders’ rights, which are relevant in the international investment treaty context but are not regulated under international law. Among the complex questions considered are the following:
In international law, arbitrators need to be attentive to the circumstances where municipal law supplies the necessary substantive legal rule. They will find this book to be the best guide to this complex challenge. The author’s analysis of the unavoidable interaction of municipal law and international law in investment treaty arbitration – and the consequences stemming from rejecting the application of municipal law when relevant – will continue to be of great value to arbitrators, arbitration counsel, corporate counsel, and scholars of international law.
