Have you ever been frustrated that arbitration folk aren't more numerate? The Guide to Damages in International Arbitration is a desktop reference work for those who'd like greater confidence when dealing with the numbers. This second edition builds upon last year's by updating and adding several new chapters on the function and role of damages experts, the applicable valuation approach, country risk premium, and damages in gas and electricity arbitrations.This edition covers all aspects of damages - from the legal principles applicable, to the main valuation techniques and their mechanics, to industry-specific questions, and topics such as tax and currency. It is designed to help all participants in the international arbitration community to discuss damages issues more effectively and communicate them better to tribunals, with the aim of producing better awards. The book is split into four parts: Part I - Legal Principles Applicable to the Award of Damages; Part II - Procedural Issues and the Use of Damages Experts; Part III - Approaches and Methods for the Assessment and Quantification of Damages; Part IV - Industry-Specific Damages Issues

Several themes emerge in this 2014-2015 edition of the Yearbook. The first is a notable focus on country and region-specific developments. Different articles focus on key developments in such countries as Australia, Brazil, China, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Russia, and South Africa. Others focus on regional innovations, in particular in Latin America. A second area of attention is reform, and proposals for reform, in investor-state dispute settlement and in investment law generally. The third theme is the continued concern about states' regulatory autonomy and the importance of their retaining ability to protect the interests of their nationals. A fourth theme concerns the continued contribution that investment arbitration makes to the development of international law, and the influence that it is starting to have on other areas of law, whether that is as a source of inspiration in the interpretation of other norms or as a source of potentially powerful persuasive authority given the "teeth" that investment law has with respect to enforcement. Included are the winning memorials of the FDI Moot for both 2014 and 2015. In 2014 a team from the University of Ottawa submitted the winning claimant's memorial, while students from Harvard Law School submitted the winning respondent's memorial. In 2015, Harvard repeated its stellar performance, again winning best respondent's memorial. The winning claimant's memorial in 2015 was submitted by students from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. These excellent memorials reveal once again the growing interest of students in international investment law and demonstrate a striving for excellence and an enthusiasm for grappling with intellectually challenging issues.

Interim and Emergency Relief In International Arbitration is a compilation of papers authored by some of the world’s leading international arbitration practitioners. It addresses issues relating to obtaining interim measure orders, including the relevant applicable standards such as irreparable harm that various international courts and tribunals, under the ICSID, UNCITRAL, ICC, SCC, and some domestic law jurisdictions often apply. It also touches upon theoretical and practical issues involving compliance with and enforcement of interim measures in international arbitration. These issues naturally are raised in the context of an ongoing discourse where tribunals have different, at times imperfect tactics for encouraging compliance with their interim measures including drawing adverse inferences, issuing diplomatic statements against a sovereign stopping just short of ordering interim measures, splitting the sum of security for costs and allowing for reimbursement, and levying heavier damages against the non-complying party without changing the substantive aspects of the award. This book explores these methods and identifies the latest trends in this exciting area of international law. Interim and Emergency Relief In International Arbitration is intended for arbitrators, practicing attorneys, representatives of international arbitral institutions and academics, all of whom will find this book very useful. The compilation of papers and presentations in the book cover a number of jurisdictions including East Asia, the Middle East, Europe and North America.

Wie man kluge Entscheidungen anstößt

Nudge – so heißt die Formel, mit der man andere dazu bewegt, die richtigen Entscheidungen zu treffen. Denn Menschen verhalten sich von Natur aus nicht rational. Nur mit einer Portion List können sie dazu gebracht werden, vernünftig zu handeln. Aber wie schafft man das, ohne sie zu bevormunden? Wie erreicht man zum Beispiel, dass sie sich um ihre Altervorsorge kümmern, umweltbewusst leben oder sich gesund ernähren? Darauf gibt Nudge die Antwort. Das Konzept hat bereits viele Entscheidungsträger überzeugt, darunter US-Präsident Barack Obama. Anschaulich und unterhaltsam präsentieren der Wirtschaftsnobelpreisträger Richard Thaler und Cass Sunstein einen neuen Ansatz der Verhaltensökonomie, der schon heute das Denken und Handeln in Politik und Wirtschaft prägt.

Präventive Gewinnabschöpfung

Unternehmen erzielen durch die Verletzungen fremder Rechtsguter und Marktverhaltenspflichten hohe Unrechtsgewinne. Das Recht scheint weder uber ein rechtspolitisches Programm noch uber effiziente Instrumente zur Verhinderung solcher Gewinne zu verfugen. Andre Janssen geht der Frage nach, ob eine haftungsrechtlich verankerte und praventiv ausgerichtete Gewinnabschopfung hier Abhilfe schaffen kann. Dazu befasst er sich zunachst mit den Grundlagen haftungsrechtlicher Verhaltenssteuerung. Anschliessend untersucht er die Teilrechtsgebiete, in denen bereits eine vorteilsorientierte Haftung besteht und als Nukleus einer allgemeinen praventiven Gewinnabschopfung dienen konnten: das Immaterialguterrecht, das Personlichkeitsrecht und das Kartelldeliktsrecht. Anhand der dort erarbeiteten Ergebnisse werden die Konturen der praventiven Gewinnabschopfung nachgezeichnet. Im Mittelpunkt stehen dabei ihre optimale Ausgestaltung und ihr optimaler Anwendungsbereich sowie die Realisierungschancen de lege lata und de lege ferenda.

International investment law is one of the fastest growing areas of international law. It has led to the signing of thousands of agreements, mostly in the form of investment contracts and bilateral investment treaties. Also, in the last two decades, there has been an exponential growth in the number of disputes being resolved by investment arbitration tribunals. Yet the legal principles at the basis of international investment law and arbitration remain in a state of flux. Perhaps the best illustration of this phenomenon is the wide disagreement among investment tribunals on some of the core concepts underpinning the regime, such as investment, property, regulatory powers, scope of jurisdiction, applicable law, or the interactions with other areas of international law. The purpose of this book is to revisit these conceptual foundations in order to shed light on the practice of international investment law. It is an attempt to bridge the growing gap between the theory and the practice of this thriving area of international law. The first part of the book focuses on the 'infrastructure' of the investment regime or, more specifically, on the structural arrangements that have been developed to manage foreign investment transactions and the potential disputes arising from them. The second part of the book identifies the common conceptual bases of an array of seemingly unconnected practical problems in order to clarify the main stakes and offer balanced solutions. The third part addresses the main sources of 'regime stress' as well as the main legal mechanisms available to manage such challenges to the operation of the regime. Overall, the book offers a thorough investigation of the conflicting theoretical positions underlying international investment law, testing their worth by reference to concrete issues that have arisen in the jurisprudence. It demonstrates that many of the most important practical questions arising in practice can be addressed by a carefully dosed resort to theory.

Eingriffsnormen - der "unfertige Teil" des europäischen IPR

Mit Erlass der Verordnungen zum IPR der vertraglichen und ausservertraglichen Schuldverhaltnisse wurde der Problematik der sog. "Eingriffsnormen" eine europaischeDimension gegeben, die Andreas Kohler einer umfassenden und neue Wege beschreitenden Analyse unterzieht. Er kommt hierbei - entgegen der herkommlichen Auffassung - zu dem Schluss, dass der auf in- und auslandische Eingriffsnormen bezogene kollisionsrechtliche Anwendungsbefehl nunmehr vollumfanglich europaischem Recht zu entnehmen ist. Auf dieser Grundlage errichtet er ein konsequentes System der Eingriffsnormen, welches eine koharente kollisionsrechtliche Behandlung solcher Bestimmungen im europaischen IPR unter Beachtung des europaischen Entscheidungseinklangs ermoglicht. Wichtige Konsequenzen aus dem im Rahmen seiner Arbeit entwickelten Ansatz sind eine vollstandigen Prufungskompetenz des EuGH hinsichtlich des auf in- und auslandische Eingriffsnormen bezogenen kollisionsrechtlichen Anwendungsbefehls sowie eine umfassende Anwendungspflicht dritt- und mitgliedstaatlicher Eingriffsnormen.
