The Participation of the EU in International Dispute Settlement: Lessons from EU investment agreements

By Luca Pantaleo, published by Springer, 2019

This book looks at the participation of the EU in international dispute settlement. It aims to provide the reader with an appraisal of the most problematic aspects connected with the participation of a sui generis legal subject such as the EU to international dispute settlement mechanisms in a state-centric international law. In particular, the publication dwells on the question of how to make possible the effective participation in disputes while at the same time preserving the autonomy of the EU legal order. It does so by outlining different models and proposing the internalization model adopted under EU investment agreements as a possible paradigm. Available at
