Privity of Contract in International Investment Arbitration
Happy to recommend this forthcoming book by my Colleague Martina Magnarelli (result of PhD Studies under my supervision at the University of Lausanne: https://www.unil.ch/dip/home/menuinst/recherche/andreas-r-ziegler/PhD%20Studies/doctorats-completes.html)
What’s in this book:
The thorough and extensive examination of investment treaty arbitration case law draws comparisons with other international adjudicatory bodies and identifies the most actual and compelling unresolved legal issues. The study’s conclusions respond with thoroughly researched authority to such key questions as the following:
- In which domains of international investment arbitration does the notion of privity of contract operate, and with what effects?
- How are states and arbitral panels reacting to the persisting unresolved issues raised by the increasing pertinence of this legal doctrine?
- What solutions are advisable amid the current criticisms surrounding ISDS?
