This book provides a substantive analysis of general principles as well as a comparative study across diverse jurisdictions. It fills a void in arbitral literature and will prove extremely useful for both academics and practitioners.

Highly recommended: The combined academic quality of the analysis and the practical approach of the contributions is a hallmark of this book. The chapters also feed into one another seamlessly. Ultimately, this book provides a complete and exhaustive review of the various issues.

- Remy Gerbay and Olivia Kilner of Enyo Law in London, GAR

It is doubtful that there exists a more thorough examination of the law on the enforcement of investment treaty awards. This book will be an invaluable guide to parties planning for, seeking or defending against enforcement actions.

- Reza Mohtashami and Alastair Stewart, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, Dispute Resolution International

The growth in cross-border investments in an increasingly globalised economy means that there are more international disputes between foreign investors and states than ever before. Investment treaty arbitration has thus become the preferred dispute resolution mechanism for resolving disputes with a state relating to foreign investment. However, securing a final arbitral award in this context is often only the beginning of a complicated process in enforcing arbitral awards against sovereigns and state entities.

Spearheaded by leading arbitration practitioner Julien Fouret, this new title brings together more than 60 experts to provide both substantive analysis of recurring issues at the enforcement stage of awards and practical perspectives on how to enforce an award based on investment treaties. It explores enforcement issues ranging from the specificities of the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes mechanism to the enforcement of interim relief and the issues of sovereign immunity and state entities; and addresses the means to enforce these types of award in practice. Valuable jurisdiction-specific information is provided for over 25 states, including coverage of the applicable international and domestic legal frameworks and reviews of the most recent practices.

Whether you are an arbitration lawyer in private practice or a user of investment treaty arbitration, this title will provide you with holistic, practical and theoretical insight on the last and most important step of an arbitral process against a state or state entity.
