Investment arbitration is at the cutting edge of international law and dispute resolution, and is predicted to be a major factor in the development of the global economic system in years to come. This one-volume monograph contains contributions from leading experts on a wide range of topics of both theoretical importance and practical implication that will affect the future of investment arbitration. The highly innovative chapters combine to form a constructive and valuable discussion for all in the arbitration field. The contributors, chosen to represent the full spectrum of perspectives, are leading arbitration experts from all over the world, including ICSID insiders, US government officials, UNCTAD research personnel, seasoned investment arbitrators and counsel, and renowned legal scholars. The book is divided into three themes, with the first centering on the adequacy of UNCITRAL and ICSID arbitration rules, with particular attention to recent and proposed changes. The second theme focuses on the future of bilateral investment treaties, discussing trends in the interpretation of treaty provisions and the debate concerning the efficacy of the treaties in benefiting developing countries. The third theme revolves around the public function of investment arbitration decisions, including the use of arbitration to resolve disputes between sovereigns and the arbitrators' role as a guardian of international public policy. The Future of Investment Arbitration is unique in its outstanding range of topics and the expertise of the contributors. It previews and guides future directions in the field, as well as discussing the larger policy implications of specific rules. It includes cutting-edge analysis of empirical research regarding BITS that is essential to evaluating many assumptions about investment law and arbitration. Finally, the book takes a broad perspective, examining the rules discussed within the larger structural context of investment arbitration, and drawing investment arbitration into the wider setting of international law and corporate governance.

Making Transnational Law Work in the Global Economy

Essays in Honour of Detlev Vagts

Author: Pieter H. F. Bekker,Rudolf Dolzer,Michael Waibel

This tribute to Professor Detlev Vagts of the Harvard Law School brings together his colleagues at Harvard and the American Society of International Law, as well as academics, judges and practitioners, many of them his former students. Their essays span the entire spectrum of modern transnational law: international law in general; transnational economic law; and transnational lawyering and dispute resolution. The contributors evaluate established fields of transnational law, such as the protection of property and investment, and explore new areas of law which are in the process of detaching themselves from the nation-state such as global administrative law and the regulation of cross-border lawyering. The implications of decentralised norm-making, the proliferation of dispute settlement mechanisms and the rising backlash against global legal interdependence in the form of demands for preserving state legal autonomy are also examined.

International Law in the U.S. Supreme Court

From its earliest decisions in the 1790s, the US Supreme Court has used international law to help resolve major legal controversies. This book presents a comprehensive account of the Supreme Court's use of international law from its inception to the present day. Addressing treaties, the direct application of customary international law and the use of international law as an interpretive tool, this book examines all the cases or lines of cases in which international law has played a material role, showing how the Court's treatment of international law both changed and remained consistent over the period. Although there was substantial continuity in the Supreme Court's international law doctrine through the end of the nineteenth century, the past century has been a time of tremendous doctrinal change. Few aspects of the Court's international law doctrine remain the same in the twenty-first century as they were two hundred years ago.

Transnational Business Law

A Development Law Perspective

Author: Rumu Sarkar

Publisher: N.A

ISBN: N.A

Category: Law

Page: 419

View: 4165

In developing countries, because of economic development pressures that deeply pervade all aspects of enterprise, international business transactions give rise to crucial issues that practitioners cannot afford to ignore. In this new book Rumu Sarkar, whose Development Law and International Finance has quickly taken its place as the preeminent theoretical analysis of the new legal discipline of development law, at last gives busy lawyers engaged in international business as practical a text as they could desire. Transnational Business Law shows that the decisions and strategies of lawyers involved in the hectic daily routines of creating and executing cross-border transactions can serve the best interests not only of their businesses but of economic development as well. In essence, this is a classic international business transactions handbook, with the overarching dimension of development law added. It offers detailed principles for structuring transactions, negotiating the underlying finance and related documents, and navigating dispute resolution mechanisms. It provides annotated forms, negotiating exercises, hypothetical examples, and actual case summaries and analyses. It presents economic development issues as they arise in such areas of activity as the following: cross-border financing of goods and services, technology transfers, and intellectual capital; structuring cross-border transactions through private equity, corporate debt, and multilateral development bank financing; managing commercial risks; negotiating debt work-outs for non-performing loans; mitigating non-commercial risks through credit enhancement strategies such as obtaining political risk insurance; and contracting for arbitration or other dispute resolution methods. Important factors such as 'long-arm' U.S. law, international legal regulation of business conduct, and relevant underlying local law and local legal traditions are all brought to bear on the issues when appropriate. Transnational Business Law will be especially useful to practitioners in developing countries whose legal decisions in relation to cross-border transactions often involve critical economic and political ramifications. Through her detailed exploration of how international transactions unfold within the context of economic development, Professor Sarkar greatly enhances the growth of a commitment among the international business community to achieve mutually constructive ways to conduct business between developed and developing countries.

Multinationals and Corporate Social Responsibility

Limitations and Opportunities in International Law

Author: Jennifer A. Zerk

Publisher: Cambridge University Press

ISBN: 1139459856

Category: Law

Page: N.A

View: 9012

The 'corporate social responsibility' ('CSR') movement has been described as one of the most important social movements of our time. This book looks at what the CSR movement means for multinationals, for states and for international law. International law is often criticized for being too 'state-centred', and ill-equipped to deal with the challenges of globalization. However, drawing from many and varied examples of state, NGO and corporate practice, this 2006 book argues that, while international law has its limitations, it presents more opportunities for the CSR regulation of multinationals than many people assume. The main obstacles to better regulation are, therefore, not legal, but political.
