“Challenges of Arbitrators in Investment Arbitration: Still Work in Progress?” in Arbitration Under International Investment Agreements: A guide to the key issues, pp. 153-182 by Loretta Malintoppi and Alvin Yap. by Loretta Malintoppi
An important aspect of the criticism of investor- state dispute settlement (ISDS) concerns the qualities of arbitrators and their independence and impartiality. Amongst the detractors of the system is US Senator Elizabeth Warren who warned inter alia that ‘ISDS could lead to gigantic fines, but it wouldn’t employ independent judges. Instead, highly paid corporate lawyers would go back and forth between representing corporations one day and sitting in judgment the next.
"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.
Raouf, Mohamed Abdel, “Emergence of New Arbitral Centres in Asia and Africa: Competition, Cooperation and Contribution to the Rule of Law” in Stavros Brekoulakis, Julian D.M. 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 Dr. 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, SBS (Hong Kong, 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.
Nael Bunni, "Dispute Board in the Middle East" (DRBF Conference, Paris, 3-4 May 2013) by Prof. Dr. Nael G. Bunni (Dublin, Ireland)
From their beginning, the pioneering Conditions of Contract issued by FIDIC in 1957 andlater editions up to 1992 provided an important source for contract conditions for civil and mechanical engineering projects in the Middle East. ...
Neil Kaplan, "If It Ain't Broke, Don't Change It", 80 Arbitration 2 (2014) Chartered Institute of Arbitrators. pp 172-175 by Mr. Neil Kaplan, CBE, QC, SBS (Hong Kong, United Kingdom)
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)
The organizers of this conference have asked me to provide some short comments on practical issues and future perspectives of investment arbitration from my experience as an arbitrator in such disputes. In the many investment arbitrations I have done in recent years, a considerable number involved parties from Russia and CIS countries, both involving the State or government or private companies in these countries.

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.
