Publication - Arbitration and Protection of Investments in Energy and Infrastructure Sectors

This book, authored by Guy Block and prefaced by Professor Raphael J. Heffron, is dedicated to special and recent issues related to international investment in the Energy and Infrastructure sectors. More than 200 investment awards are analysed, scrutinizing jurisdictional issues, standards of protection of investments (expropriation, Fair and Equitable Treatment, National Treatment, Full Protection and Security, Umbrella claim and Most Favored Nation Treatment), quantum of damages and allocation of costs of arbitration. 

Another added value of the book is the selection of numerous tests applied by the Arbitration Tribunals and the complex exercise of “entering the minds” of Arbitrators to ascertain the reasoning behind Arbitral awards.

The underlining question addressed is how far the States’ rights to regulate go and to which extent the acquired rights of foreign investors are protected.

The book is expected to be released by the end of 2020.
