This is a summary of two articles I produced in an extended exchange with Susan D. Franck and others in the Yearbook on International Investment Law & Policy. The exchange dealt with the role of empirical methods in testing for possible bias in investment treaty arbitration and with various criticisms of Franck's earlier study on this topic in the Harvard International Law Journal (2009).
