The Coordination of Multiple Proceedings in Investment Treaty Arbitration

Hanno Wehland

Oxford International Arbitration Series

  • The first work to comprehensively address the issues arising in the context of multiple proceedings before investment treaty tribunals and propose a systematic approach to applicable coordination mechanisms
  • Dissects the widely-recognised uncertainty about the coordination mechanisms investment treaty tribunals should apply when faced with multiple arbitral proceedings or proceedings in the domestic courts of a host state
  • Addresses the determination of jurisdiction of competing forums, fork in the road clauses, consolidation, hierarchical coordination principles, lis pendens and res judicata, principles of comity and the prohibition of abuse of process
  • Makes clear and practical propositions for applying the rules for coordinating simultaneous or subsequent multiple proceedings
  • Examines in detail the possible application of each mechanism with reference to relevant decisions and legal commentary
