Book launch: Arbitrating the Conduct of International Investors

The Permanent Court of Arbitration and Cambridge University Press are honoured to announce the publication of Arbitrating the Conduct of International Investors by Jose Daniel Amado (Miranda & Amado), Jackson Shaw Kern (Addis Law Group LLP) and Martin Doe Rodriguez (Permanent Court of Arbitration):

“Investment arbitration has emerged from modest beginnings and matured into an established presence in international law. However, in recent years it has drifted from the reciprocal vision of its founders. This volume 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.” (Cambridge University Press)

The book was launched at an event at the Peace Palace in The Hague on Friday, 16 February 2018. After an introduction by Hugo H. Siblesz,  Secretary-General of the Permanent Court of Arbitration, a panel discussion ensued including the authors and the following commentators: Eduardo Silva Romero (Dechert LLP, Paris), Cherie Blair QC (Omnia Strategy LLP, London) and Judge Koffi Kumelio A. Afande (former judge of the ICTY and ICTR, The Hague). H.E. Mr. Carlos Andres Miguel Herrera Rodríguez, Ambassador of Peru to the Netherlands, presented the closing words.
