Clasmeier: Arbitral Awards as Investments

Maximilian Clasmeier has published Arbitral Awards as Investments: Treaty Interpretation and the Dynamics of International Investment Law (Wolters Kluwer 2017). Here's the abstract:
Arbitral Awards as Investments analyzes the treatment of arbitral awards as investments within international investment law. The rise of international investment arbitration has resulted in the emergence of a number of intriguing legal and political challenges. One of those is the question of whether or not arbitral awards may constitute investments pursuant to existing investment treaties. In approaching the problem, it is the interconnection between theory and practice that delivers solutions. This book presents the first detailed analysis of tribunals’ approaches to this question to date and examines the interpretative outcomes.
