International Investment Law and Soft Law
BOOK REVIEW INTERNATIONAL INVESTMENT LAW AND SOFT LAW Edited by Andrea K. Bjorklund and August Reinisch Edward Elgar Publishing Ltd ISBN: 978 1 78100 321 3 www.e-elgar.com ERUDITE INTERNATIONAL DEBATE ON A TIMELY TOPIC An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers As the learned authors have expressed it, this book, published recently by Elgar has brought together a group of nine distinguished contributors from some of the world's top universities and academic institutions to discuss 'the intersection of soft law and the law of international investment'. Author Andrea Bjorklund, for example, is Professor of Law at the University of California at Davis and visiting professor at McGill University's School of Law in Montreal. August Reinisch is Professor International and European Law at the University of Vienna and lectures at the Bologna Center of Johns Hopkins University. Their fellow contributors hail variously from Dundee in Scotland to Jerusalem, to Wittenberg in Germany. We have here, therefore, an international perspective on the topic. The various contributors we have referred to were members of a study group that had concluded its work with the publication of the 'Oxford Handbook on International Investment Law' which addressed major issues relating to both substantive and procedural investment law. As explained by several of the contributors, including Moshe Hirsch, who writes the second chapter, soft law rules are not legally binding and it is up to the discretion of legal decision-makers as to whether or not such rules can be applied to a particular dispute. His chapter in particular briefly discusses, among other topics, the interactions between 'soft law' (non-binding instruments) and the recognized sources of investment law. The views of this group of international experts do shed interesting light on such matters as GATT/WTO and certain fields in particular, namely commercial law, environmental law, as well as investment law. Fundamentally, the various chapters attempt to answer the general question of whether investment law can, or should be 'codified', with special reference to such issues as most favoured nation treatment and also, expropriation. Extensively footnoted throughout, with a detailed index at the back, the book covers an exceptionally wide range of issues in the process of examining the topic of investment law and soft law. If you're involved in investment law, or government investment treaty negotiations, or arbitration proceedings -- or if you have an interest in international law and legal theory, you would do well to acquire this erudite and timely work of reference.

Research Handbook on Sovereign Wealth Funds and International Investment Law
BOOK REVIEW RESEARCH HANDBOOK ON SOVEREIGN WEALTH FUNDS AND INTERNATIONAL INVESTMENT LAW Edited by Fabio Bassan Edward Elgar Publishing Limited ISBN: 978 1 78195 519 2 (book) 978 1 78195 520 8 (eBook) This book is available electronically in the Elgaronline Law subject collection DOI 10 4337/9781781955208 www.e-elgar.com www.elgaronline.com ANOTHER HIGH LEVEL FINANCIAL RESEARCH HANDBOOK FROM ELGAR ON INTERNATIONAL INVESTMENTS An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers Edward Elgar Publishing has taken over the mantle as one of the leading legal publishing houses which produce high quality research materials for the top end of academic endeavours whether it be by way of publishing edited theses or bringing together an array of glittering experts in a particular field to give us all a bit of individual enlightenment on the more difficult bits of financial law. And here, with the “Research Handbook on Sovereign Wealth Funds and International Investment Law” edited by the admirable Professor Fabio Bassan and his seventeen colleagues we have another timely contribution to this area of intellectual debate on international investment law. Bassan will be well known to many readers for his previous work from Elgar in 2011 entitled “The Law of Sovereign Wealth Funds” Four years later we have this new collection of essays researching the role that sovereign investments can play at a time of crisis when the materials and commentaries which are available to academics remain still highly unsatisfactory although a start has been made. Bassan continues with his main theme in his introduction, writing that “the focus continues to be on the active side (investment flows and trends), grounded in economic scenarios and objectives”. Note the use of his words here! He then goes on to say that “conversely, investigations from a legal standpoint are still few and not focused on the ‘passive side’, namely the host States’ concerns about sovereign investments’ goals and tools”. He concludes that both foreign direct investment and portfolio investments remain unexplained so his aim is to investigate “the state of the art of the legal investigation” plugging gaps by his contributors and he does just that with his method! So we can confirm that the book’s original structure whereby the editor set the contributors specific tasks is rightly described as illustrating the state of the art of the legal investigation on sovereign investments and filling necessary gaps in previous research with these new researched views. The editor’s current research focus is based on investment flows and trends, grounded in economic scenarios and objectives set out in his introduction. Conversely, investigations from a legal standpoint remain few in number, namely disregarding the host states’ concerns about sovereign investments goals and tools which is where the holes really are. Most of the many relevant drivers that affect current sovereign investments whether they are FDI or portfolio investments remain unexplained. Therefore, the task to investigate the juridical foundation of sovereign investments and extend our frontier of understanding is undertaken with relish. Bassan wants each chapter in the handbook to have “one least common denominator and a fil rouge connecting all chapters” and he does just that when you read the book, which as is to be expected is highly complex, in some detail. Thank you Professor Bassan as you have moved the discussion of sovereign wealth funds and international investment law some paces forward in 2015.

Arbitration Law Handbook edited by Ben Horn and Roger Hopkins
BOOK REVIEW . ARBITRATION LAW HANDBOOK Edited by Ben Horn and Roger Hopkins ISBN: 978-1-84311-708-7 Informa www.informa.com ARBITRATION LAWS IN OVER 20 COUNTRIES: IN ONE HANDY HANDBOOK An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers In today's global commercial environment, international arbitration has emerged as an important safeguard for investors. Therefore, the need for a definitive work of reference on arbitration, mediation and adjudication rules is immediately apparent -- and this assistance is what the editors of this ADR volume amply provide as more and more disputes are resolved in this way in preference to the courts. If you're an arbitrator or arbitration lawyer involved in resolving cross border disputes, you need this book for its rules, particularly if the seat of the arbitration is in a country or jurisdiction other than the one in which you are qualified. In this sense, as the authors point out, the practice of commercial arbitration is unique in that lawyers in one jurisdiction may often conduct arbitrations in another. This one convenient volume contains the arbitration laws of over twenty countries; twenty four, to be precise, from Australia and Austria to the Ukraine, UAE, UK and USA, as well as the main procedural rules used in each. If separate maritime arbitration rules are in place, these are also included. Of particular help or the confused (like us) is the 'overview' section at the beginning of each country which sets the scene on the rules. The international section sets out in its entirety, the UNICTRAL Model Law, which has contributed greatly to the harmonization of the laws of international commercial arbitration. Also included among a wealth of other material are the ICSID Arbitration Rules, which apply to the settlement of investment disputes and the WIPO, with its more than 180 members, which pertains to intellectual property disputes. The detailed index of over 30 pages is a particularly useful feature as a shortcut to looking up what you need to know, especially concerning specific rules, in the more than 1,000 pages of this indispensable paperback volume. For shipping lawyers, including 'in house' lawyers, as well as arbitrators and dispute resolution lawyers, or anyone involved in negotiating cross border contracts, the 'Arbitration Law Handbook 'is a must-have work of reference. As the authors rightly say, the importance today of international conventions and agreements relating to international arbitration cannot be overstated- this handy handbook ensures that they are not with a wealth of detail so well set out!

Proposed Amendments to the ICSID Rules: Third-Party Funding
In recent years there has been increased resort to third-party funding in litigation and arbitration, including investor-State arbitration. The use of third-party funding in investment arbitration has prompted a debate on whether it should be regulated, and if so, how it should be regulated. In this video, Natali Sequeira and Jara Minguez Almeida discuss proposed rules that would require disclosure of third-party funding in ICSID arbitration.

Bilateral Investment Treatment Claims
BOOK REVIEW BILATERAL INVESTMENT TREATY CLAIMS The Essentials By Khawar Qureshi QC ISBN: 978 0 85490 194 4 WILDY, SIMMONDS & HILL PUBLISHING Wildy’s Legal Handbook Series www.wildy.com A PRACTICAL SHORT STATEMENT ON THE ESSENTIALS OF BILATERAL INVESTMENT TREATY (BIT) CLAIMS An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers The author, Khawar Qureshi QC, begins this excellent short work with the following statement: “there has been a huge increase in Investment Treaty based arbitration claims against States in recent years”. To fill the gap, Qureshi has written this title in the Wildy’s Legal Handbook series. BIT disputes are continuing to expand rapidly as a high-profile area of international litigation so the appearance of the handbook now is most welcome. “Bilateral Investment Treaty Claims” is specifically for practitioners and State legal advisers who need to identify and understand the key elements which underpin BIT based claims by reference to the leading arbitral decisions from ICSID and UNCITRAL Investment Treaty Tribunals. Christoph Schreuer and Rudolf Dolzer, writing in the Foreword say that their significance is usually discussed in terms of the impact on investment streams and thus economic development. They go on to say that “a frequently overlooked aspect of BITs is their effect on international relations”. It is therefore to the international aspect that this book dwells. Diplomatic protection “by the investor’s State of nationality” (a convenient way of dealing with a jurisdiction issue) has been exercised because of often “ill-defined principles” and was therefore a frequent source of irritation and discord. However, with the creation of legal rules in a hitherto largely unregulated area, BITs have “depoliticized disputes and brought a measure of legal security”. Schreuer and Dolzer conclude that “in the presence of objective treaty standards supported by an effective investor-State dispute settlement mechanism, the host state and the investor’s home State are less likely to be drawn into investment disputes.” They also comment that the handbook is a “most useful manual for practitioners and students alike. It offers a practice-oriented review of the most important features of BITs and their application by tribunals”. Hopefully, many readers will be familiar with BITs so the initial four chapters of the work give a useful background to BITs and their key features plus a checklist for practitioners contemplating or involved in a claim under a BIT. The penultimate chapter describes additional considerations, citing leading case law dealing with the scope for preliminary measures in BIT cases, abuse of process and illegality and there are two excellent and detailed annexes. The author has generously donated all royalties to the Bar Benevolent Fund. It is a most useful new manual from Wildy for both students and practitioners alike. What we particularly liked was the “practice-orientated overview” of the most important features of BITs and their application by tribunals to give us a refreshing insight into this developing area of international law. The current law is as stated at January 2016

International Cultural Heritage Law summer school
A summer school on the international protection of cultural heritage law in the 21st century in Geneva this summer 2014! http://genevasummerschools.ch/courses-2014/international-protection-of-cultural-heritage-in-the-21st-century-threats-and-challenges The summer school offers an overview of the international and comparative law for the protection of cultural heritage. The course aims to develop the students' awareness of the main substantive themes of cultural heritage law, namely: the protection of cultural property in times of war; the restitution of artworks lost as a result of theft, illicit excavations and illicit trade; the protection of the built heritage and of the human rights associated to the tangible and intangible heritage. In order to offer an up-to-date glance at cultural heritage law, the summer course will also focus on the different ideological positions of the relevant stakeholders and on its complex relationship with other fields of law -- namely general international law, human rights law, intellectual property law, and international investment law -- and with the issue of dispute settlement. Finally, this course aims to bring out the challenges to cultural heritage that emanate from old and new threats. To name but a few: armed conflicts; reduced protection of sites and monuments due to lack of public money and political support; natural catastrophes; and damage to cultural sites caused by human activities.

Investor-State Arbitration, National Treatment, and Expropriation Challenges: A Tale of Myths
ABSTRACT The protection of foreign investment is a sensitive issue, and so are the different legal methods employed in protecting and regulating investment which diverge considerably according to different jurisdictions. The failure of world government to establish an international investment agreement has been deal with through bilateral investment treaties (BITs). On 4 November 2013 South Africa published for public comment the Promotion and Protection of Investment PPIB. In a move that can simply be described as bold South Africa signalled the intention to follow in part the precedents set of countries like Australia that jettisoned the approach of the foreign protection and remedies through BITs. A few of South Africa’s trading partners who have been affected by the termination of BITs are unhappy with the advent of the new investment regime effectively labelling it a step backwards and a disincentive for investment. This paper discusses the ramifications of the new investment regulatory regime in South Africa, in particular the legislative prohibition of international investor-State arbitration, and what this move means for foreign direct investment (FDI) in the country. -Omphemetse S Sibanda Sr

UCL / Bindmans LLP Annual Debate 2015 | The TTIP: A modern Magna Carta for business?
The TTIP: Is it a modern day Magna Carta, but for business, and where will it leave citizens’ rights? The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), currently being negotiated, will create a free trade area between the US and EU. Its aim is to help people and businesses large and small, by opening up the US to EU firms, helping cut red tape that firms face when exporting and setting new rules to make it easier and fairer to export, import and invest overseas. Critics however fear it will erode democracy, further hardwire ‘free market’ principles into the global economy and enforce corporate power through parallel legal systems that make states accountable to corporations rather than vice versa. Of particular interest to lawyers are proposed ‘investor-state dispute mechanisms’ – tribunals in which corporations can litigate against government, at the cost, critics argue, of human rights, citizens’ interests and the rule of law. In the 10th Annual UCL/Bindmans LLP Debate, panellists Jacqueline Minor, Head of the European Commission’s Representation in the UK; Antonios Tzanakopoulos, Associate Professor of Public International Law, University of Oxford; Allie Renison, Head of Europe & Trade Policy, Institute of Directors; and Nick Dearden, Director of Global Justice Now debate what the TTIP will mean for citizens rights. The debate is chaired by Joshua Rozenberg. This year's debate was held on 17 June 2015 in UCL's Cruciform Building.

The conversation takes up the issues advanced by Chesterman in his article on Asia’s ambivalence to international law and institutions, and explores them further. Taking as its starting point the paradox of Asia benefiting most from international law and global governance institutions whilst remaining the least likely to participate in such institutions, the conversation looks at the historical and other reasons for this ambivalence and moves on to discuss possible futures for the involvement of Asian states in international law institutions. The interview was recorded at the National University of Singapore.

The Handbook of Maritime Economics and Business
BOOK REVIEW THE HANDBOOK OF MARITIME ECONOMICS AND BUSINESS: MARINE INSURANCE LEGISLATION 2nd edition Edited by Costas Th. Grammenos ISBN: 978-1-84311-880-0 Lloyds List, London NEW FROM LLOYD'S -- AND THE LATEST FROM THE GRAMMENOS LIBRARY... AN INDISPENSABLE REFERENCE BOOK ON ECONOMIC AND BUSINESS ISSUES IN THE WORLD OF SHIPPING An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers If you're professionally involved in the world of shipping, whether novice or experienced practitioner, student or senior academic, you're probably familiar with now well known first edition (published in 2002) of this expertly compiled and thoroughly researched Handbook. This 2nd edition, published June 2010 offers a wealth of new material reflecting the numerous and profound changes that have affected shipping markets in these intervening eight years, but more of that later. One of the latest publications from Lloyd's, this edition incorporates within its 1000+ pages a compilation of definitive articles on a wide range of shipping topics from forty of the world's top academics from 30 universities in 18 different countries, ranging alphabetically from Professor Patrick M. Alderton to Professor Manfred Zachcial. Read their biographical details in the 15-page List of Contributors and prepare to be astounded. What a world of expertise and authority between two covers! Interestingly, Alderton, to cite only one example, is particularly noteworthy in our view for having run away to sea age seventeen and 'trying most types of ships' before embarking on his formidable academic career. No ivory tower theorist he—combining both practical and theoretical insights as appropriate, as do the majority of his fellow contributors. As editor Professor Grammenos states, the Handbook has been directly or indirectly influenced by the event of 21st century's first decade; from the explosive growth rates in China, to the emergence of world recession with all its problems, including the US subprime crisis and the 'toxic products' it engendered. Consequently there is considerable new material in the Handbook, from an analysis of freight rates fluctuations...to measures for controlling air pollution from ships... to a discussion of capital markets as a source in shipping finance. The range of shipping issues presented is certainly broad, not to mention thorough, from International Seaborne Trade and Shipping Investment Finance and Strategy, to International Logistics and IT. The index is satisfactorily detailed and the number of bibliographical references (mostly in the end-notes which append each chapter) is vast -- and a treasure trove of sources if you're undertaking research. The Handbook, in short, is an important work of reference which will prove of immense value to everyone involved in the economic and business aspects of shipping.
