English summary: Due to the enormous need for infrastructure investment world-wide and due to governments' inability to finance such investments, innovative financing techniques have been developed, BOT (build, operate, transfer) techniques being one of them. Governments and private investors should be on an equal footing when negotiating BOT contracts in order to allocate risks in a way which will be acceptable for all parties involved. In his study, Tim Metje analyzes the risks and opportunities inherent in BOT project financing and evaluates pertinent new developments in international investment law. German description: In Zeiten allgemeiner Knappheit offentlicher Haushalte lassen sich staatliche Investitionen in die offentliche Infrastruktur nur noch selten oder sehr eingeschrankt realisieren. Zunehmend beteiligen sich private Investoren an der Finanzierung offentlicher Infrastruktur. Tim Metje untersucht die Moglichkeit Private im Rahmen so genannter BOT-Modelle (BOT = Build, Operate, Transfer ) einzubinden. Dies sind offentlich-private Partnerschaften, bei denen private Investoren Infrastrukturprojekte in staatlichem Auftrag realisieren, betreiben und erst nach einem Zeitraum von bis zu 30 Jahren auf den sie beauftragenden Staat ruckubertragen. Da das Engagement privater Investoren ganz wesentlich von einem stabilen nationalen und internationalen Investitionsschutzregime abhangt, das sich letztlich auch im Streitfall bewahren muss, liegt hier der Schwerpunkt der Untersuchung.Nach einer Einfuhrung in die wesentlichen Funktionsmechanismen internationaler BOT-Projekte auf der Grundlage einzelner Beispiele und nach Ausfuhrungen zu den Erwartungen der Projektbeteiligten diskutiert der Autor die Chancen und Risiken des geltenden Investitionsschutzrechts. Zugleich bewertet er neuere investitionsschutzrechtliche Ansatze, wie etwa die Flexibilisierung von Vertragsverhaltnissen. Dies lasst ihn - unter Berucksichtigung der Besonderheiten von BOT-Projekten - auch die Frage nach einem fur alle Beteiligten effektiven Streitbeilegungsmechanismus thematisieren.

The law on foreign direct investment (FDI) belongs to the fastest changing legal field in international law. Investors and the host state have long left behind a relationship dominated by the host state's desire to screen and choose FDI. In the current market for FDI, both parties try to assert influence, but in the end the scarcity of FDI is the decisive factor. This book provides an in-depth study of the legal framework for the admission of FDI and presents insights into the pros and cons of various admission models. Its goal is to identify legal and policy options that serve the host state's and investor's common needs. The book is a comprehensive, easy reference handbook that is of interest to lawyers, academics and policy makers.

International investment law is one of the fastest growing areas of international law. It has led to the signing of thousands of agreements, mostly in the form of investment contracts and bilateral investment treaties. Also, in the last two decades, there has been an exponential growth in the number of disputes being resolved by investment arbitration tribunals. Yet the legal principles at the basis of international investment law and arbitration remain in a state of flux. Perhaps the best illustration of this phenomenon is the wide disagreement among investment tribunals on some of the core concepts underpinning the regime, such as investment, property, regulatory powers, scope of jurisdiction, applicable law, or the interactions with other areas of international law. The purpose of this book is to revisit these conceptual foundations in order to shed light on the practice of international investment law. It is an attempt to bridge the growing gap between the theory and the practice of this thriving area of international law. The first part of the book focuses on the 'infrastructure' of the investment regime or, more specifically, on the structural arrangements that have been developed to manage foreign investment transactions and the potential disputes arising from them. The second part of the book identifies the common conceptual bases of an array of seemingly unconnected practical problems in order to clarify the main stakes and offer balanced solutions. The third part addresses the main sources of 'regime stress' as well as the main legal mechanisms available to manage such challenges to the operation of the regime. Overall, the book offers a thorough investigation of the conflicting theoretical positions underlying international investment law, testing their worth by reference to concrete issues that have arisen in the jurisprudence. It demonstrates that many of the most important practical questions arising in practice can be addressed by a carefully dosed resort to theory.

This work deals with the current state of investment dispute resolution and analyzes the problems associated with investor-state arbitration. The author examines developments in the existing legal framework and looks at the mechanisms under existing domestic and international systems â?? such as judicial review and class actions â?? to see if these can be applied to investment dispute resolution. The author concludes that the features of traditional arbitration are not flexible enough to meet the needs of this modern form of international dispute resolution. Investment arbitration is now entering a new phase of its development. The traditional, typically arbitration-related issues of consent, privity, and confidentiality are making room for the now more important questions of disclosure, transparency, legal certainty, and consistency. The author calls for setting up a "model procedure," specifically created for international investment disputes as this would enable the establishment of a "tailor-made" process for this ever-growing area of law.

Diploma Thesis from the year 2017 in the subject Law - Miscellaneous, grade: 1.7, Humboldt-University of Berlin (International Dispute Resolution Master of Laws (LL.M.) Programme), course: International Investment Arbitration, language: English, abstract: The piercing the corporate veil in ISDS plays a twofold role. From the investors’ perspective, it is instrumental if a tribunal can ignore the difference between the legal personality of the company in which they invested in and the shares that they hold. Per contra, States also invoke this doctrine by trying to convince a tribunal to look at the true personalities involved and not to allow an investor to hide behind the veil of the different legal personalities. To address these competing interests, the author of this Master Thesis in Chapter II intends to analyse the characteristic pattern and standing of shareholders in bringing indirect claims aimed to persuade the tribunal to ignore the difference between the legal personality of a company and its shareholders and to look at the true interests at stake instead. In Chapter III, the applicability of the piercing the corporate veil doctrine will be approached from the States’ perspective and when they invoke the denial of benefits clauses. On the basis of the foregoing, this Master Thesis purports to address the intersection between the jurisdiction of the arbitral tribunal in ISDS and the concepts of investor and investment underlying the application of the piercing the corporate veil doctrine. By doing so, the author of this Master Thesis explores the provisions of IIAs commented on by authoritative treatises, contemporary views embodied in articles, and jurisprudence of international investment treaty tribunals. In order to arrive at its findings and conclusions, this Master Thesis utilizes the method of description, method of conceptual analysis, comparative method, and method of evaluation.
