"Breach of Treaty Claims and Breach of Contract Claims: Is it still unknown territory?" in Arbitration Under International Investment Agreements: A guide to the key issues, pp.323-350. by Mr. Stanimir A. Alexandrov (Washington DC., United States)

"International Arbitration as a Transnational System of Justice," in Arbitration - The Next Fifty Years, ICCA Congress Series No. 16, 2012, pp.66-73. by Prof. Dr. Emmanuel Gaillard (Shearman & Sterling LLP, Paris, France)
18/10/2016
International arbitration is increasingly recognized as a transnational system of justice, if not a genuinely autonomous legal order, sometimes labeled as the arbitral legal order. This evolution, however, continues to generate robust controversies on the extent of autonomy of international arbitration from national legal systems and the role, if any, that the seat of the arbitration should have over the arbitral process.
"Transcending National Legal Orders for International Arbitration," in International Arbitration: The Coming of a New Age?, ICCA Congress Series 371 (A. J. van den Berg ed., 2013). by Prof. Dr. Emmanuel Gaillard (Shearman & Sterling LLP, Paris, France)
18/10/2016
The role of national courts in international arbitration is a relatively well defined concept. National courts may intervene at the end of the arbitral process for purposes of the enforcement or review of an arbitral award; they may also intervene during the arbitral process, most frequently to assist the arbitral process, for example in relation to the constitution of the arbitral tribunal. Opinions differ, however, as to the extent to which national courts can and should interact with the arbitral process, and whether national court decisions rendered in relation to the arbitral process should be given transnational effect.

Since the first comprehensive work in sociology of international arbitration in 1996 by Dezalay and Garth, international arbitration has changed considerably. This article considers those changes, through the prism of sociology.
Neil Kaplan (with Olga Boltenko), "A Secret Tool for Winning an Arbitration Case" in Asian Dispute Review (July 2015) pp. 116-121 by Mr. Neil Kaplan, CBE, QC (Gloucestershire, United Kingdom)
20/07/2015
This article describes a known but yet remarkably neglected tool to prepare for and defend an arbitration case successfully: a mock arbitration, also known as an ‘in-house mini trial’. Mock arbitration is arguably rooted in a US litigation tradition of mock jury trials. This tradition is now being applied to arbitration practice by the most sophisticated counsel in the field. The pros and cons of this tool are explored and the authors offer a comprehensive guide to the use of mock arbitration in practice.

10/07/2014
Newest is not always best. This article raises the issue as to whether in international arbitration we have gone too far in relying upon written submissions and the belief that all has been read and understood by the tribunal. A compromise between the two extremes is investigated.
Karl-Heinz Böckstiegel, "Practicial Issues and Perspectives of Investment Arbitration Involving Russian and CIS Parties" (Conference of International Dispute Resolution Involving Russian and CIS Companies, London, February 2014) by Prof. Dr. Karl-Heinz Böckstiegel (Bergisch-Gladbach, Germany)

22/01/2013
Mesdames, gentlemen, it is a privilege for me to be here with you today as part of this prestigious faculty of speakers and, in particular, to share this panel with Professor Alvarez. We have collectively been presented with a very challenging task. The sovereign debt crisis experienced by Argentina over a decade ago has given rise to serious questions concerning the adequacy of the institutions and norms that govern the resolution of international investment disputes, to address disputes such as those that have arisen from Argentina’s management of its financial crisis. These questions are all the more urgent in our present global financial climate. Indeed, the financial woes that most Western States have experienced over the past several years are far from over. I am thinking, in particular, of Greece, Spain, Portugal, Ireland, and Italy, each one of which may act to stabilize its economy, cause damage to international investors and add to ICSID’s docket. The past is therefore prologue, and the implications of our “stocktaking” exercise today are potentially more far-reaching than the Argentina cases.
Lucy Reed, "Arbitral Decision-making: Art, Science or Sport?" (Kaplan Lecture 2012, Hong Kong, 2 December 2012) by Lucy Reed
14/01/2013
The topic of my lecture tonight is how individuals make decisions; and most importantly to us, how arbitrators make decisions. I will not speak only about theory, but also about practicalities – how and why we as counsel can do better in putting our cases before arbitrators for decision.
