Abstract

This chapter focuses on how the European Commission and the Member States are reasserting their control in the new EU investment treaties. In addition, the analysis also looks at the efforts of the European Commission to reassert control over existing BITs of the Member States. It also tries to forecast how the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) would react to these reforms.

Keywords: investment arbitration; BITs; ISDS; ICS; European Commission; control; treaties
