Judicial Restraint in Investment Treaty Arbitration

Gus Van Harten

  • Provides an innovative analysis to show why international arbitration should be restrained by the same mediating factors limiting domestic judicial review
  • Establishes an in-depth empirical assessment of publicly-available awards to investigate the complex reality of how arbitrators have exercised their authority
  • Controversially asserts that arbitrators have been somewhat indulgent in their attitude towards states, in contrast to the restraint typically shown by domestic and international courts
  • Online Appendices
