Investment Arbitration



The course gives an introduction on dispute settlement with regard to foreign direct investment (FDI) and Multinational Enterprises (MNE). It focuses on the relevant topics in arbitral proceedings, in particular investor-State arbitration (definitions and coverage of important agreements, arbitral institutions, questions relating to the establishment and functioning of investor-State arbitral tribunals), such as contained in bilateral investment treaties (BITs) and multilateral initiatives, such as NAFTA Chapter 11 of the OECD's project for a Multilateral Investment Agreement (MAI). Particular emphasis is given to ICSID and the UNCITRAL Rules in the specific context of FDI. The course includes an overview of recent case law in the field.
