This chapter focuses on mixed arbitration, that is, arbitration between a host State and a foreign investor. It discusses five methods to give consent to arbitration: consent by direct agreement, consent through host state legislation, consent through bilateral investment treaties, consent through multilateral treaties, and consent under most-favoured-nation clauses. The chapter then looks at temporal issues of consent and interpretation of consent.
