About the product

International arbitration has been the most commonly used method for the settlement of international investment disputes. However, other forms of dispute settlements are, to date, only rarely used in practice. Taking into consideration that international arbitration does have a distinct set of disadvantages and is generally costly, this paper presents alternative approaches to the settlement of investment disputes as well as approaches States can take to avoid and prevent investment disputes from arising in the first place.
