As an exemplary demonstration of developing theory to keep up with practice, this unique book provides a deeply engaged means for enhancing the practice of international arbitration. Its introduction of a new field of interdisciplinary analysis employing legal argumentation theories is sure to provide inestimable guidance for institutions and policymakers, especially in light of recent proposals for the creation of a permanent investment arbitration court. Given that unveiling the legal decision-making process is critical for the well-being of the whole dispute resolution procedure, and that being aware of how arbitrators interpret the law can constitute a roadmap for counsel’s arguments and approaches when dealing with cross-border disputes, the topic of this book is relevant for both academics and practitioners, and its significance can only grow as recourse to investor-state arbitration continues to expand.

European Public Law is an English language journal edited at the Institute of European Public Law at the Law School, Hull University. A forum for the discussion of issues in the development of public law, the journal traces the public law of the Member States as it is shaped by the law of the European Union as well as by the Council of Europe’s European Convention on Human Rights.

Without neglecting the more traditional concerns of constitutional and administrative law, the journal explores the emerging constitution of the European Union and the interplay between law and politics. It is concerned with the identification, examination and control of public power as public and private become ever more intertwined.

Public law is given a wide interpretation, including the structure of government, judicial review, the conduct of regulatory bodies, redress of grievance through ombudsmen and administrative bodies, protection of human rights and protection against discrimination, openness and transparency, fiscal and monetary policy, and the role of regulation in the contemporary state and the European Union.

European Review of Private Law discusses the great practical as well as academic importance of national private laws in an integrating Europe, in the face of the current overwhelming emphasis placed on European Union Law.

Cross-border research will become increasingly important as cross-border legal work develops. Hence the need for a law review which focuses on legal developments within a broad European perspective, and which provides a platform for debate on the desirability of a unified private law in Europe, as a complement to economic, monetary and political union.

By providing accessible and comparative surveys of legal developments in a number of countries, with summaries of articles and case notes in French, German and English, the Review provides a valuable source of information for lawyers wishing to look for new ideas with which to encourage their courts to innovate in private law.

The European Review of Private Law aims to provide a forum which facilitates the development of European Private Law. It publishes work of interest to academics and practitioners across European boundaries.
