The future of investment arbitration
• What will be done to address criticism by the general public that investment arbitration is elitist, non-transparent and biased?
• How will the trend of states taking back interpretive authority from arbitration tribunals as to investment treaty provisions affect substantive standards and dispute resolution?
• Will arbitrators increasingly take public interest in investment arbitration into account and deliver justice in a broader sense?
• What is the prospect of a shift to a permanent investment court and/or an appellate body for investment arbitration?
