Corruption in International Investment Arbitration by Aloysius Llamzon now available on Investment Claims
We are pleased to announce the addition of Corruption in International Investment Arbitration by Aloysius Llamzon to Investment Claims. Forming part of the prestigious Oxford International Arbitration Series, this resource is the first comprehensive study of corruption in international investment arbitration. The title considers the limited effectiveness of efforts to combat transnational corruption in international law and the emergence of international investment arbitration as a means of controlling corruption within international legal order. The case law on corruption by investment tribunals is studied exhaustively, jurisprudential trends are identified, and reforms aimed at enhancing the effectiveness and fairness of investment arbitration as a mechanism to combat corruption are proposed.
Investment Claims is hosting a webinar on this important topic, with a leading panel including the author, Aloysius Llamzon.
