"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)
Foreign investments are often made by means of a contract between the investor and an entity of the host governments. The article discusses how treaty-based tribunals approach disputes that arise out of such contracts.
"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)
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)
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.
"Black’s Bank’ and the Settlement of Investment Disputes". Chapter 8 of David D. Caron and others (eds.), Practising Virtue: Inside International Arbitration (2015) [essays honoring Charles N. Brower]. By Antonio R Parra by Mr. Antonio R. Parra (Washington, USA)
This article discusses an aspect of the prehistory of ICSID, the experience of the World Bank with the settlement of investment disputes during the 1950s.
"On the "Group of Companies Doctrine" and Interpreting the Subjective Scope of Arbitration Agreements - which law applies?". Originally written in German and published in the liber amicorum in honor of Siegfreid H Elsing, 2015, p. 475. by Prof. Dr. Klaus Sachs (Munich, Germany)

Lew and Loukas Mistelis, eds., The Evolution and Future of International Arbitration, Volume 37, Kluwer International Law Library (2016) series ed. Julian D.M. Lew. by Mohamed Abdel Raouf
The article analyses the impact of the emergence of new arbitral centres in Asia and Africa and to what extent has the competition and cooperation among such centres contributed to the development of international arbitration and to fostering the rule of law.
Gaillard, Emmanuel, “Sociology of international arbitration” in Arbitration International, 2015, 31, 1–17 by Prof. Dr. Emmanuel Gaillard (Shearman & Sterling LLP, Paris, France)
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)
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.
