Abstract

The book under review has primarily made an appraisal of the recent developments in arbitral case law of both contract as well as treaty arbitrations in the context of state contracts. The book comprises seven chapters and is based on the author’s doctoral thesis. The aspects that prominently figure in the thematic discussion are the applicability of international law to state contracts, procedural aspects (i.e. jurisdiction and enforceability) of international arbitration, the concept of legitimate expectation in the context of contract claims and contractual restriction of public powers.

Keywords: State Contracts, Investment Contracts, Treaty Arbitration, Investor-State Arbitration
