The paper presents the experiences of Central Europe with investment arbitration. The European Union’s Central European member states are the litmus test of the policy issues within the investor-state arbitration system. The paper explores the Central European treaty and policy landscape and analyzes investment protection issues pertaining to the region (intra-EU bilateral investment treaties, non-expropriation cases concerning national regulatory sovereignty, the fairness of national court or administrative proceedings and the exercise of contractual rights).
