A practical handbook on Investment Arbitration
The book was aimed to provide to lawyers, in-house counsels, experts & students from different backgrounds, a practical and objective guide that could lead them towards the full understanding of different topics on investment arbitration. "I decided to design its structure in a way that each theoretical topic discussed would be illustrated with some of the mains leading cases. [...] Therefore, the readers will be able not only to study the doctrine about standards of protection in investment arbitration, for instance, but they will also be able to visualize its application, through cases such as Waste Management v Mexico, where the minimum standard of treatment of fair and equitable treatment was infringed by conduct attributable to the state of Mexico." (Johan Billiet)

Alternative Dispute Resolution in the Energy Sector
In a world held in the grip of economic downfall, increasing scarcity of energy supplies, plummeting oil prices, rising intra-state energy transit, protectionist natural resources policies and growing environmental concerns, time and cost are not to be underestimated factors in the choice of a suiting dispute resolution method. This book covers the hot topics related to the Energy Charter Treaty not only from a theoretical point of view, but also from practical experiences in France, the United Kingdom and Belgium. Moreover, this publication is original in that it addresses the issue of soft law in investment arbitration and includes a fictional case elaborating on the influence of different interest groups in energy disputes.
