Energy Arbitration



This course studies the use of international arbitration in the energy sector, and how disputes arising in this context are resolved. From the investment perspective, foreign investors require strong guarantees that states will respect the “rules of the game” that constitute the basis of their investments. On the other, states can use their sovereign powers to regulate and protect public interests and interfere with foreign energy investments, which are of socio-economic importance.


This course aims to review and understand the overall framework of international energy investments, including investment treaties. It also provides students the understanding of commercial and investment issues of disputes in the energy sector. The course combines theoretical critical thinking about fundamental aspects of the dispute resolution process and investment law, with practical insights and hands-on case studies on the energy sector.
