Organised by

The EUI International Economic Law and Policy and Private Law Theory working groups host an event with Yuliya Chernykh (Inland School of Business and Social Sciences) who will present her new book on "Contract Interpretation in Investment Treaty Arbitration." The presentation will be of particular relevance to those interested in contract law, international economic law and private international law.

Contracts are relevant, frequently central, for a significant number of investment disputes. Yet, the way tribunals ascertain their content remains largely underexplored. How do tribunals interpret contracts in investment treaty arbitration? How should they interpret contracts? Does national law have any role to play?

Contract Interpretation in Investment Treaty Arbitration: A Theory of the Incidental Issue addresses these questions. The monograph offers a valuable insight into the practice and theory of contract interpretation in investment treaty arbitration. By proposing a theoretical frame for seamless integration of contract interpretation into the overall structure of decision-making, the book contributes to predictability, coherence, sufficiency and correctness of the tribunals’ interpretative practices in investment treaty arbitration. 

Anyone interested is welcome to register below for the event. You will receive a link to the Microsoft Teams meeting upon registration.
