Holding Foreign Investors Accountable for Violations of International Law
Foreign investors benefit from investment protection standards in international investment law which are enforceable in investment arbitration. However, international law does not directly bind foreign investors and investment arbitration struggles to address foreign investor misconduct. Thus, host States cannot easily claim against foreign investors for breaches of international law in investment arbitration. In Counterclaims in Investment Arbitration, Edward Guntrip illustrates how host States can use counterclaim procedures in investment arbitration to hold foreign investors accountable for misconduct that breaches international law. Based on arbitral practice, the book sets out how host States can amend their State practice and litigation strategies to enhance the effectiveness of counterclaim procedures and assesses when host States should take this course of action.
Essays In Honour of Piero Bernardini
Arbitration is adjudication and, like any form of adjudication, it must ensure justice to parties. Justice requires that in settling disputes arbitrators constantly balance the opposing interests of the parties and the different legal systems relevant to the resolution of the dispute from time to time at hand. This book addresses such issues by looking at the different stages of arbitration: from the selection of the arbitral seat to the definition of jurisdictional limits, from the choice of applicable law to the revision of arbitral awards.

The book collects essays by colleagues and friends of Piero Bernardini, a leading practitioner of international arbitration who was a champion in achieving balance in the administration of justice through arbitration.

This updated and revised second edition covers new developments, including the recent works of the International Law Commission and the Institute of International Law.

With the entrance of the European Union into the field of International Investment Law and Arbitration, a new specialist field of European Investment Law and Arbitration has been developing rapidly. This new field draws on EU law, Public International Law, International Investment Law, International Arbitration and Practice and International Economic Law, while other fields of law such as Energy Law, Environmental Law and Human Rights are increasingly becoming relevant.
This Review is the first and only law yearbook that is specifically dedicated to the new emerging field of European Investment Law and Arbitration.
This volume unites three disparate strands of historical and legal experience. Nearly from its beginning, the Catholic Church has sought to promote peace – among warring parties, and among private litigants. The volume explores three vehicles the Church has used to promote peace: papal diplomacy of international disputes both medieval and contemporary; the arbitration of disputes among litigants; and the use of the tools of reconciliation to bring about rapprochement between ecclesiastical superiors and those subject to their authority. The book concludes with an appendix exploring a wide variety of hypothetical, yet plausible scenarios in which the Church might use its good offices to repair breaches among persons and nations.
The hospitality and construction industries are international economic drivers, with complex economic relationships and diverse legal issues.

What happens after a judgment is delivered by a tribunal constituted under the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea? In this ground-breaking book, all the decisions issued by the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea or Annex VII arbitral tribunals are examined to determine what results transpired following the judgment or order. The authors consider what compliance means and whether it has been achieved in UNCLOS dispute settlement. We suggest what other outcomes have sometimes eventuated from UNCLOS dispute settlement and propose steps that may be taken to enhance judgment compliance.
The open access publication of this book has been published with the support of the Swiss National Science Foundation.

Blockchain is the first global mechanism for the transfer and storage of value. Despite being conceived as an alternative to state and law, the technology and its use cases raise many legal questions, most notably, regarding jurisdiction and applicable law with respect to transactions and assets recorded on the blockchain. The issue is complex given the decentralised nature of the network. In this volume, academics and practitioners from various countries try to provide detailed answers to these questions as they relate to crypto-assets, cryptocurrencies, crypto derivatives, stablecoins, Central Bank Digital Currencies and Decentralised Autonomous Organisations (DAOs), as well as specific transactions and issues, such as property rights, secured transactions, smart contracts and bankruptcy. With specific chapters on national approaches (Germany, Japan, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, United States), the volume explores the need and possibility for legal harmonisation of these issues through global fora, such as the Hague Conference on Private International Law (HCCH) UNIDROIT.
