9780199286645: International Investment Arbitration: Substantive Principles (Oxford International Arbitration Series)

Arbitration of overseas investment disputes is one of the fastest growing areas of international dispute resolution. The exponential growth of international investment in recent years has led to the signature of over two thousand Bilateral Investment Treaties (BITs) between foreign states, in addition to a wealth of multilateral treaties and other forms of concession agreements. Disputes that have arisen are often resolved through the forum of international arbitration, and typically involve claims by an investor company for compensation when an investment has been illegally expropriated or adversely affected by the state's activities.

The legal principles that have developed in this area are subject to intense debate, and are still in a state of flux. While tribunals routinely state that they are applying principles of public international law to determine disputes, many of the principles applied have only been developed recently in the context of investment treaty arbitrations, and tribunals are often guided more by the approaches taken by other tribunals, than by pre-existing doctrines of public international law. However, the volume of law created, applied and analyzed by tribunals is such that it is now possible to begin the necessary process of codification. International Investment Arbitration: Substantive Principles is an important step in this process. The book provides the first modern detailed analytical survey of the developing substantive principles of international law which are being applied to disputes by international investment tribunals. It considers the key questions that arise, and provides a clear description of the present state of the law as reflected in tribunal practice. Key areas of coverage include: the instruments under which investment disputes arise; the legal basis of treaty arbitration; dispute resolution and parallel proceedings; who is a foreign investor, including nationality issues and foreign control; what is an investment; investors' substantive rights; expropriation; compensation and remedies.

As the volume of international investment arbitration grows, international law firms are increasingly having to acquire expertise in all aspects of this specialized and rapidly developing field. Written by a leading author team from Herbert Smith, and benefiting from the public and private international law experience of Professor Campbell McLachlan QC of Victoria University of Wellington, this book is an essential reference work for international arbitration counsel, arbitrators, and academics.
