Its clear text and interesting illustrations of principles from actual cases make it a very useful read for both expert practitioners and for those who are looking at the subject from other disciplines or for the first time.”

The authors of this volume do an admirable job of exploring and explaining dispute resolution regarding foreign investments, particularly the ICSID system, within the context of uncertainty. Students, practitioners and policy specialists alike will find much value in this work.”

Mark Kantor, Independent Arbitrator
