Author: Stefan Talmon
This book examines the South China Sea Arbitration between the Philippines and China, widely hailed as a landmark case in the law of the sea. Stefan Talmon argues that while the Tribunal assembled international lawyers of the highest repute and unrivalled experience, the case was nevertheless decided wrongly. He examines every step of the proceedings and critically engages with both the Philippines’ submissions and the Tribunal’s rulings. He finds that the Tribunal was lacking jurisdiction to decide the case, that some of the Philippines’ claims were also inadmissible, and that the Tribunal’s awards were tainted with procedural errors.
The Austrian Review of International and European Law is an annual publication that provides a scholarly forum for the discussion of issues of international and European law, with emphasis on topics of special interest for Austria.

The concluding parts of the Review contain longer book reviews and shorter book notes. Volume 25 covers 2020 and features a special focus on international dispute settlement.
The compatibility of ISDS in Bilateral Investment Treaties (BITs) and the Energy Charter Treaty (ECT) with the autonomy of EU law
The EU’s participation in international dispute resolution mechanisms presents particular problems owing to its multilevel governance and its autonomy from international and national law. The inclusion of foreign direct investment in the Common Commercial policy in the Treaty of Lisbon, expanded those to investment arbitrations under Member States’ BITs, as the Court of Justice ruled in Achmea. EU Law and International Investment Arbitration, examines the impact of that inclusion beyond Achmea, from the perspectives of international and EU law, to the remaining extra-EU BITs of the Member States and the Energy Charter Treaty.
Legal Remedies for the Protection of Cross-border Properties
The Polish dispute on an adequate approach towards the Białowieża Forest has been significantly internationalised, primarily by UNESCO and the European Union. The judgment of the CJEU has not settled the substance of the dispute, although it points to a violation of EU legal standards. The authors of The Disputed Białowieża Forest: Legal Remedies for the Protection of Cross-border Properties address the dispute in a constructive and interdisciplinary manner, rather than merely expressing concern towards in situ conservation, and derive universal legal remedies from it. They conclude that in the case of unique invaluable goods, adequate individual solutions should be applied in the form of a localised agreement, open to many entities (interested states, international organisations and even socially responsible private corporations), on the condition that organisational and financial co-responsibility are accepted.
The Policy Space in International Intellectual Property Law presents a critical and original examination of the policy space in international intellectual property law through the unique lens of glocalisation. Distinguishing between the unregulated local space and the regulated glocal space as distinct components of this policy space, it contends that it is within the glocal space that states can resist or adapt the globalising waves flowing from the international intellectual property system. It discusses both the contours and the components of this glocal space. It further highlights the important role that the WTO’s adjudicatory bodies play in preserving this glocal space in international intellectual property law.
The contributions in this collection of the American Classics in International Law series, Peaceful Resolution of Disputes, edited by Lori Fisler Damrosch, present the most influential American ideas about dispute settlement. From Alexander Hamilton’s 1794 defense of arbitration, through 20th-century debates over the International Court of Justice and other international courts and tribunals, to contemporary controversies over law-of-the-sea dispute settlement, American leaders and scholars have promoted perspectives on dispute resolution shaped by the American experience. An introductory essay explores American ideas about dispute resolution in relation to war, the judicial role in resolving concrete controversies under law, and problems of institutional design.

Contracts are relevant, frequently central, for a significant number of investment disputes. Yet, the way tribunals ascertain their content remains largely underexplored. How do tribunals interpret contracts in investment treaty arbitration? How should they interpret contracts? Does national law have any role to play? Contract Interpretation in Investment Treaty Arbitration: A Theory of the Incidental Issue addresses these questions. The monograph offers a valuable insight into the practice and theory of contract interpretation in investment treaty arbitration. By proposing a theoretical frame for seamless integration of contract interpretation into the overall structure of decision-making, the book contributes to predictability, coherence, sufficiency and correctness of the tribunals’ interpretative practices in investment treaty arbitration.

This new field of law draws on EU Law, Public International Law, International Investment Law, International Arbitration Law and Practice and International Economic Law, while other fields of law such as Energy Law are also relevant.
This Review is the first law yearbook that is specifically dedicated to the field of ‘European Investment Law and Arbitration’.

The main ambition of this work is to shed a different light on international economic adjudication, using methods drawn from different social sciences and evolving around the idea of critical discourse analysis. It studies the case law as a discourse, adopting a CLS and Neo-Gramscian approach, to unveil the neoliberal and hegemonic structures of international economic adjudication. Starting from the technical issue of the use of unwritten law, it provides context to understand how judicial power structures have built a certain vision of the global economy, rooted in a neoliberal understanding of the world. L'objectif principal de ce travail est de porter un regard nouveau sur le contentieux international économique, en utilisant des méthodes issues de différentes sciences sociales et évoluant autour de l'idée d'analyse critique du discours. Étudiant la jurisprudence en tant que discours et adoptant une approche critique et néo-gramscienne, il entend dévoiler les assises néolibérales et hégémoniques de ce contentieux. Partant de la question technique de l'utilisation du droit non écrit, il fournit des éléments de contexte pour comprendre comment les structures du pouvoir judiciaire ont construit une certaine vision de l'économie mondiale, ancrée dans une compréhension néolibérale du monde.
