Damages in International Investment Law

By Sergey Ripinsky, Kevin Williams

The past two decades have seen a rising wave of investor-State arbitrations, which pose important questions in international law. Now available in paperback, this book addresses one of the least understood and most unpredictable areas in that field: the assessment of damages. The book is a result of a two-year research project carried out at the British Institute of International and Comparative Law, and it is the first to examine the subject in a systematic, comprehensive, and detailed manner. Damages in International Investment Law offers a much-needed, balanced assessment of the complicated and controversial issues arising in relation to compensation awards, putting special emphasis on the interpretation and application of international rules on damages by arbitral tribunals. In addition to careful analyses of the most recent investment treaty case law, other relevant practices (both international and national) are reviewed. Thorough, well-organized, and supplemented by analytical annexes, the book will be a valuable reference tool for legal professionals and a practical aide for constructing and resolving damages claims in investment arbitrations. *** "A brilliant work, informative and elegantly written. Highly recommended to arbitration practitioners." -- Prof. Dr. Peter Behrens, Professor of Law, U. of Hamburg [Subject: International Law, Investment Law, Treaty Law, Arbitration]
