In a world held in the grip of economic downfall - with increasing scarcity of energy supplies, plummeting oil prices, rising intra-state energy transit, protectionist natural resources policies, and growing environmental concerns - time and cost are not to be underestimated factors in the choice of a suiting dispute resolution method. This book covers the hot topics related to the Energy Charter Treaty, not only from a theoretical point of view, but also from practical experiences in France, the UK, and Belgium. Moreover, this publication is original in that it addresses the issue of soft law in investment arbitration and includes a fictional case elaborating on the influence of different interest groups in energy disputes.
