International Arbitration: Commercial and Investment Treaty Law and Practice by Elliot Polebaum explores the different facets and types of international arbitration agreements, including the consequences of what the parties have provided or failed to provide. The book also discusses the different stages of an arbitration proceeding, including initiation of the case, constitution of the tribunal, interim measures, discovery, pre-hearing submissions, the hearing on the merits, awards, and annulment and enforcement proceedings. The legal framework in which all of this transpires—international conventions, national arbitration laws, arbitration rules, and the business agreement between the parties—is also considered.
Additionally, the book takes up the subject of investment treaty arbitration in detail. Foreign investors have a strong preference to resolve their investment disputes with States in a neutral arbitral forum rather than in the State's own courts. This book addresses the legal framework within which these investment treaty arbitrations take place, including discussion of the terms of investment treaties, and the jurisdiction and procedure of investment treaty arbitrations under the auspices of the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes in particular. The book also explores the substantive grounds of investors' treaty claims against States, States' defenses and counterclaims, remedies, and annulment and enforcement of investment awards.
