Its clear text and interesting illustrations of principles from actual cases make it a very useful read for both expert practitioners and for those who are looking at the subject from other disciplines or for the first time.” Meg Kinnear, Secretary-general, International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) “The study of international investment law has never been more important than in these times of ceaseless uncertainties. The authors of this volume do an admirable job of exploring and explaining dispute resolution regarding foreign investments, particularly the ICSID system, within the context of uncertainty. Students, practitioners and policy specialists alike will find much value in this work.” Mark Kantor, Independent Arbitrator “This is an excellent introduction to the entire field of international investment law and international mechanisms for the settlement of investment disputes.
