Investment Arbitration is a multi-billion dollar venture. It is an area of international dispute resolution, which has undergone tremendous growth in recent years and resulted in the signature of thousands of Bilateral Investment Treaties (BITs) between foreign states and several Multilateral Investment Treaties (MITs). Numerous disputes involving these instruments are resolved through international arbitration. Arbitral tribunals have rendered many awards ordering the payment of large sums of money. This handbook provides an explanatory introduction into the area of investment arbitration, differentiating it from commercial arbitration and state-to-state arbitration. It examines the legal framework and the general course of an international investment arbitration. In particular, it focuses on the standards of protection in international investment agreements, the concept of jurisdiction in international investment arbitration and the arbitral award, including the notions of recognition, enforcement and execution. Moreover, this cutting-edge publication contains relevant and recent case law in the area and deals with contemporaneous issues such as the ongoing controversy regarding the future of Intra-EU BITs and Free Trade Agreements as well as the link between vulture funds and investment arbitration. The handbook aims at arbitrators, lawyers, practitioners, academics, students and everyone with an interest in international investment arbitration.

The Practitioner's Handbook on International Arbitration and Mediation, 3rd Edition is a unique work with each chapter written by a well-known practitioner and expert in the field. It covers each step of the international arbitration and mediation process and offers separate chapters that summarize the laws of leading arbitral venues. This Handbook is intended to make the reader into a better practitioner or arbitrator/mediator. Moreover, each chapter has been written to provide practical advice and guidance. Unlike many works with multiple authors, this work is not simply a collection of essays on a general subject. This book is a unified work with cross references among the chapters and a consistent format throughout. The Practitioner's Handbook is divided into three parts. Part One describes in detail each step of the international arbitration process and offers tips. Part Two deals with each step and facet of an international mediation. Each of these chapters is filled with Practitioners’ Expert Commentary. Part Three summarizes the laws of leading arbitral jurisdictions, like Hong Kong, England, Switzerland, and France. These chapters give you detailed guidance on the laws governing international arbitration in that particular jurisdiction. As a result, the chapters in Part Three are a bit more technical as the authors realized that the reader would need citations to and commentary on the local arbitration statutes and rules. The CD ROM that accompanies this Work contains relevant original source material that is germane to the text. A review of the table of contents of the material contained on the CD ROM will acquaint you with the range of material covered.

A Handbook of Dispute Resolution

ADR in Action

A Handbook of Dispute Resolution examines the theoretical and practical developments that are transforming the practice of lawyers and other professionals engaged in settling disputes, grievance-handling and litigation. The book explains what distinguishes ADR from other forms of dispute resolution and examines the role ADR can play in a range of contexts where litigation would once have been the only option, such as family law and company law. In some areas, like industrial relations, ADR is not an alternative, but the main method of conflict-intervention, and several contributors draw on their experience of negotiating between management and unions. A wide variety of methods is open to the non-litigious, including resort to Ombudsmen, negotiation, small claims courts and mini-trials; these and other options receive detailed attention. Given the newness of ADR as a discipline, questions about the training of mediators and about the role of central government have not yet been resolved. The final section of the book is devoted to discussion of these issues. Case studies are drawn from the international arena - examples from China, Canada, Australia, Germany and North America place ADR in a cultural and historical perspective.

Finn Madsen's highly praisedCommercial Arbitration in Sweden is a "ready-reference" handbook covering all cases and commentary relevant to arbitration in Sweden. Madsen comments not only on the Swedish Arbitration Act (SAA) and the Rules of the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce (SCC Rules) in the context of Swedish case law, but also provides appropriate references to international commentary. Importantly for international arbitrators and practitioners, since most international arbitrations in Sweden are conducted under the auspices of the SCC Rules, it is relevant that Madsen provides a reference to and comments upon the relevant SCC Rules in conjunction with the corresponding provisions of the SAA.
