Arbitrating the Conduct of International Investors

By Jose Daniel Amado, Jackson Shaw Kern and Martin Doe Rodriguez, Published by Cambridge University Press, January 2018

Investment arbitration, emerging from modest beginnings and maturing into an established presence in international law, has drifted from the reciprocal vision of its founders. This book serves as a comprehensive guide for those who wish to reform international investment law from within, seeking a return to the mutuality of access that is in arbitration’s essence. A detailed toolset is provided for enhancing the access of host states and their nationals to formal resolution mechanisms in foreign investment disputes. It concludes by offering model texts to achieve greater reciprocity and access to justice in the settlement of disputes arising from international investments. Available at
