A Guide to State Succession in International Investment Law

By Patrick Dumberry, published by Edward Elgar, July 2018

This book provides a comprehensive analysis of state succession issues arising in the context of international investment law. It examines the legal consequences in the field of investor–state arbitration arising from the disappearance or the creation of a state, or from a transfer of territory between states. In particular, it analyzes whether a successor state is bound by the investment treaties (bilateral and multilateral) and the state contracts signed by the predecessor state before the event of succession.
