“The Future of Dispute Settlement in International Economic Law” ( OPEN CALL FOR ABSTRACTS – EYIEL 2021)

“The Future of Dispute Settlement in International Economic Law” ( OPEN CALL FOR ABSTRACTS – EYIEL 2021)

The editors of the European Yearbook of International Economic Law (EYIEL) welcome abstracts from scholars and practitioners at all stages of their career for the focus section of the EYIEL 2021. This year’s focus will be on “The Future of Dispute Settlement in International Economic Law” given that new forms of dispute settlement are emerging, whereas others are in deep crisis.


Abstracts may cover any topic relating to dispute settlement in the field of international economic law, though preference is given to topics focusing on the perspective from public international or EU law. We particularly welcome contributions addressing the following aspects:


– WTO Appellate Body Crisis/Multi-Party Interim Appeal Arbitration Arrangement/WTO
Dispute Settlement Reform Options,
– ISDS Reform/Investment Court System/Multilateral Investment Court,
– ITLOS and UNCLOS Dispute Settlement System and their relevance for economic relations,
– Private International Law and Dispute Resolution,
– Online Dispute Resolution,
– Alternative Dispute Resolution,
– or other issues in the field of dispute resolution in a broader context, e.g. on current trade and/or investment agreements (bilateral or regional), international patent or copyright disputes etc.


Abstracts should not exceed 500 words. They should be concise and clearly outline the significance of the proposed contribution. Abstracts may be submitted until 31 October 2020 via e-mail to eyiel@leuphana.de.


Successful applicants will be notified by 15 November 2020 that their proposal has been accepted. They are expected to send in their final contribution by 31 January 2021.
Final submissions will undergo peer review prior to publication. Given that submissions have been developed on the basis of an accepted proposal, that review will focus on the development of the paper’s central argument. Submissions addressing particular regional and institutional developments should be analytical and not descriptive. Due to its character as a yearbook, EYIEL will not publish articles which will lose their
relevance quickly. Submissions should not exceed 12,000 words (including footnotes and references), though preference may be given to shorter submissions. They should include an abstract and a biographical note. Submissions need to be in conformity with the EYIEL style guidelines.


The editors of the EYIEL welcome informal enquiries about any other relevant topic in the field of international and European economic law. In case you have an idea or proposal, please submit your enquiry via e-mail to eyiel@leuphana.de.

Great new volume in the series I co-edit: “EYIEL special issue: Fach Gómez, Gourgourinis, & Titi: International Investment Law and Competition Law” (2020)

Great new volume in the series I co-edit: “EYIEL special issue: Fach Gómez, Gourgourinis, & Titi: International Investment Law and Competition Law”

Katia Fach Gómez (Univ. of Zaragoza – Law), Anastasios Gourgourinis (National and Kapodistrian Univ. of Athens – Athens Public International Law Center), & Catharine Titi (Centre national de la recherche scientifique; Université Paris 2 Panthéon-Assas) have published International Investment Law and Competition Law (Springer 2020). The table of contents is here. Here’s the abstract:

This EYIEL special issue examines the interaction between international investment law and competition law. Although issues related to both international investment law and competition law arise regularly in international legal practice and are examined together, scholarly analysis largely treats them as parallel universes. As a result their actual and potential overlap has yet to be sufficiently explored. In this light, International Investment Law and Competition Law discusses a variety of topics at the intersection of investment and competition, including the interaction between competition-related provisions and investment protection standards in free trade agreements; investors’ anti-competitive behaviour and illegal investments; state aid schemes and foreign investors’ legitimate expectations; EU member States’ compliance with investment awards as (illegal) state aid under EU law; State-owned enterprises and competitive neutrality; and interactions between public procurement, investment and competition law.
