Few concepts of public international law admit of more varied interpretations than denial of justice. Apart from considering the historical development of the concept, this chapter identifies substantive provisions in investment treaties and human rights instruments providing the basis for claimants to advance elements of a denial of justice violation. It then highlights factual underpinnings commonly arising in the investment arbitration and human rights contexts, and suggests that the general thrust and approach of tribunals and organs in these two specialized areas of public international law share similarities. Finally, after considering the extent to which investment and human rights guarantees concerning elements of a denial of justice have been shaped by distinct particularities and practices in the realms of investment and human rights adjudication, the chapter concludes that the concept of denial of justice is considerably more malleable in the former.
