Course Objective:

Investment arbitration, although it is arbitration, differs from commercial arbitration in fundamental ways:

  • Commercial arbitration is based on an arbitration agreement, whereas investment arbitration may be based either on (a) an investment treaty, either multi- or bilateral (BIT), (b) the host State’s national investment law, which often provides for protection of foreign investors or (c) in certain circumstances, an investment agreement;
  • In commercial arbitration, the arbitral tribunal judges the contract between the parties, i.e. its conclusion, performance and termination, whereas in investment arbitration, the arbitral tribunal makes findings on the host State’s behavior towards a foreign investor.

In investment arbitration, the arbitral tribunal thus judges the host State’s behavior when exercising its sovereign rights as provided for either by law, treaty or contract, in light of customary international law.

Course Outline:
In this course you will have an opportunity to:

  • Consider why arbitration is often viewed as an attractive alternative to litigation in domestic courts
  • Identify the drawbacks to litigating in either home or host state courts
  • Identify the advantages investor-state disputes settlement holds over state-state dispute settlement
  • Identify the various sources for consent to an investment arbitration
  • Review the identity of the most frequent defendants in investment cases
  • Consider the appropriate source of those rules – national law, international law, non-binding codes of conduct, rules in arbitral institutions
  • Consider the importance of designating a place of arbitration, because in a non-ICSID case the law of the place of arbitration will govern the amount of assistance that local courts will give the arbitration and the applicable set-aside rules
