Treaty-based investment arbitration is becoming increasingly important in international commerce, with the vast majority of such investment cases being filed within the past three years. The issues associated with investment arbitration are therefore of growing interest not only to governments but also to the business and legal communities. Within this overall picture, the Energy Charter Treaty occupies a singular position, providing a unique multilateral investment protection regime for the energy sector. This book seeks to provide practical guidance to the complex operation of the Treaty.
