Investment Treaty Arbitration and Public Law

Gus Van Harten

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the problems arising from the use of arbitration to resolve regulatory disputes. Four criteria of public law adjudication — accountability, openness, coherence, and independence — are reviewed in order to identify flaws with the present system. A framework for reform of the system is proposed, involving the establishment by like-minded states of an international judicial body to replace the existing system of investment treaty arbitration.

Keywords:   public law, investment treaty arbitration, regulatory disputes, accountability, openness, coherence, independence, investment court, international adjudication
