Rules and Practices of International Investment Law and Arbitration Summary

Rules and Practices of International Investment Law and Arbitration by Yannick Radi

International investment law and arbitration is its own 'galaxy', made up of thousands of treaties to be read in relation to hundreds of awards. It is also diverse, as treaty and arbitration practices display nuances and differences on a number of issues. While it has been expanding over the past few decades in quantitative terms, this galaxy is now developing new traits as a reaction to the criticisms formulated across civil society in relation to the protection of public interest. This textbook enables readers to master and make sense of this galaxy in motion. It offers an up-to-date, comprehensive and detailed analysis of the rules and practices which form international investment law and arbitration, covering its substantive, institutional and procedural aspects. Using analytical and practice-oriented approaches, it provides analyses accessible to readers discovering this field anew, while it offers a wealth of in-depth studies to those who are already familiar with it.

Rules and Practices of International Investment Law and Arbitration Reviews

'Rules and Practices of International Investment Law and Arbitration is a remarkably clear and accessible treatment of what is currently the most complex and dynamic area of international law. While established substantive and procedural concepts are thoroughly explained, Professor Radi does not shy from revealing the critical fault lines and perennial bugbears in the field in their most controversial light. Beyond showing us the status quo, the coverage of the evolution in treaty practice and new policy initiatives makes this book a harbinger of the path to ISDS reform.' Brooks W. Daly, Deputy Secretary-General and Principal Legal Counsel, Permanent Court of Arbitration
'A clear, precise, well-constructed work that provides an effective key to understanding a subject that has become complex and prolific. The author has been able to take sufficient distance to grasp the dominant logic as the main features of this branch of international law, while providing precise analyses of the evolution of arbitral jurisprudence. An indispensable tool for students and practitioners alike.' Pierre-Marie Dupuy, Emeritus Professor, University Paris 2 Pantheon-Assas
'This book offers an extensive, practice-oriented analysis of the procedural, substantive and institutional aspects pertaining to international investment law, while also exploring its theoretical underpinnings and recent crisis of legitimacy. Professor Dr Radi has written a comprehensive work of reference that will be extremely useful for scholars and practitioners of investment arbitration alike.' Albert Jan van den Berg, Founding Partner, Hanotiau & van den Berg
