With the entrance of the European Union into the field of International Investment Law and Arbitration, a new specialist field of law, namely ‘European Investment Law and Arbitration’ is in the making. 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’.

Published under the auspices of Queen Mary University of London and EFILA.

The European Investment Law and Arbitration Review is also available online.
Shaping Subnational Policies in the Transport, Energy, and Spatial Planning Sectors
How can subnational governments best integrate climate change considerations across policy areas? Which factors contribute to successful integration?

With a specific focus on transport, spatial planning policies, and energy and water in selected cases located at the border of the Alpine region between Italy and Austria, this volume shows that coordination (vertical and horizontal), public participation and information, leadership, and dedicated funding play fundamental and interlinked roles in climate change policy integration.
Rule of Law Guardian for the Public Health Derogation
Author:
In an era of Covid 19, The Court of Justice of the European Union explores the extent to which the CJEU can realise a powerful role as guardian of the EU’s rule of law in a public health emergency. Drawing on an extensive literature review, The Court of Justice of the European Union argues the CJEU can realise such a role by anchoring a structured rule of law review in its reasoning when considering the exercise by the Member States of the public health derogation. Both the legal reasoning of the CJEU during the Covid 19 public health emergency and its aftermath, as well as the related challenges to the EU’s rule of law, are legally and politically of intense interest to legal academics, legal practitioners, policy makers and students.
Children and the Environment offers a unique perspective on the legal protection of children from environmental degradation, a global topic of increasing significance. An original in recent literature, the book calls for viewing children as central in environmental decision-making and presents law and policy proposals, based on current international and regional trends, on topics such as human rights, climate change and the protection from toxics. Drawn from the author’s extensive research and practical experience, it will appeal to policy makers, academics, youth activists, and all involved in giving children a healthier and more sustainable environment.
Author:
This book analyses the domestic application of international law, with a particular focus on the concept of direct applicability. It critically examines the relevant doctrine and practice and proposes a new analytical framework. It argues that international law is presumed to be directly applicable, that the criteria for direct applicability are grounds to exclude rather than establish direct applicability, and that the positive intent of the parties should not be a criterion. It contends that direct applicability is a question of domestic law and that domestic legal force is a prerequisite for direct applicability. It also advocates a relative approach.
