In this book James Nafziger covers emerging topics of cultural heritage law, particularly at the international level, by focusing primarily on the numerous work products of the International Law Association's Committee on Cultural Heritage Law. Cultural heritage law has become a landmark in the field of international law. Its construction is a good example of transnationalism at work, combining legislation, judicial decisions, and other national initiatives, diplomacy, intergovernmental agreements, especially within the framework of UNESCO, and non-governmental activities and instruments. This volume focuses on the seminal contributions to this process of the Committee on Cultural Heritage Law of the International Law Association, while situating these projects against the broader background of the development of the modern international regime for protecting cultural heritage.
The Nijhoff International Trade Law Series is a forum for important and original research. It covers international trade law in its widest sense, including International Economic Law and International Financial Law.
The series moves across the boundaries that divide the law. The series includes studies of trade law subjects that would fall within the disciplines and sub-disciplines of public and private international and comparative law. National implementation and other aspects of the interaction between national and international law is a growing field of scholarship, and national constitutional arrangements relating to 'foreign affairs', and to the implementation of international norms, are a focus of attention. The relationship between different treaty regimes and the emergence of international rule of law concepts are also subjected to more rigorous analysis. Comparative law is increasingly used as a tool in the making of law at national, regional and international levels. Different international and national systems interact in ever more complicated ways. Private international law is often affected by international conventions, and the issues faced by classical conflict rules are dealt with by substantive harmonization of law. International arbitrations involve public and private international law, and investment protection and human rights and democratic standards.
Books published in the series have been through a rigorous peer review, where the editors are assisted by leading trade law scholars. In addition to scholarly monographs, the series will publish edited collections of essays.

In Sustainable Development in EU Foreign Investment Law, Stefanie Schacherer offers an account of the legal effects of sustainable development within the EU’s international investment policy and global investment governance. The author provides a clear assessment of how the EU contributes to the ongoing debate on sustainable development integration in international investment agreements. By analysing the EU’s post-Lisbon treaty practice, the author critically assesses to what extent the EU has managed to operationalise a sustainable-development-driven foreign investment policy.
A Philosophical Deconstruction of an Investor-State Tribunal's Authority to Award Interim Relief in Relation to Criminal Proceedings
Author: Ottavio Quirico
Against the background of climate change, the Energy Charter Treaty and the law and policy of the European Union are no longer fully aligned with each other: in the case of a conflict in the area of investment regulation, what norms should apply? Within the framework of the ongoing reform of the international investment system, notably, investor-State dispute settlement, and of the modernisation of the Energy Charter Treaty, Ottavio Quirico explores how to approach regulatory conflicts and re-harmonise the Energy Charter Treaty with the law of the European Union.
Revisiting Jurisdiction in Investment Treaty Arbitration
Author: Relja Radović
Conventional wisdom in the theory and practice of investment treaty arbitration says that the jurisdiction of arbitral tribunals is regulated by party consent. In Beyond Consent: Revisiting Jurisdiction in Investment Treaty Arbitration, Relja Radović investigates the formation of another layer of jurisdictional regulation, which is developed by arbitral tribunals.

The principle that the jurisdiction of arbitral tribunals is governed by party consent stems from the foundations of the international legal order. Against that background, Radović surveys case law and analyses the development of arbitrator-made jurisdictional rules, which complement those defined by disputing parties. He then argues in favour of recognising the regulatory function of arbitral tribunals in the jurisdictional structure of investment treaty arbitration.
Domestic Courts, Commercial Arbitration Institutions and Tribunal Jurisdiction
Author: Joel Dahlquist
Arbitration clauses in investment treaties often provide investors with a choice between ICSID arbitration, on the one hand, and rules originally drafted for commercial arbitration on the other. The Use of Commercial Arbitration Rules in Investment Treaty Disputes studies how domestic courts and commercial arbitration institutions impact the scope of arbitral tribunal jurisdiction when commercial arbitration rules are used.

Based on extensive studies of court decisions and previously-unknown arbitral awards, Joel Dahlquist’s book analyses the practice of domestic courts in reviewing treaty-based jurisdiction, and explains how the two most used commercial arbitration institutions – the ICC and the SCC – have drafted, interpreted and applied their arbitration rules in treaty-based disputes.
