The Decision Making Process Of Investor State Arbitration Tribunals
Author: Mary Mitsi
Publisher: Kluwer Law International B.V.
Release Date: 2018-12-28
Pages: 336
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

In the course of a single investor-state dispute, an arbitrator may make numerous decisions, from interpreting the treaty or national laws to taking into account case law, customs and policies. In practice, this process raises important issues regarding the consistency of decisions and the predictability and legitimacy of the decision-making process in general. Investment arbitration tribunals have developed a specialised process of legal decision making adapted to the interpretational needs that arise in the context of an investor-state dispute and to the transnational characteristics of the investment arbitration framework. This is the first book to offer an in-depth analysis of the transnational characteristics of investment arbitration and to analyse the interpretive arguments of investment tribunals and the way they use treaties, precedent, policies, general principles of law and customary law in their decision-making process. Drawing on publicly available arbitral case law supplemented with personal interviews with investment arbitrators, the author touches on such concepts and practices as the following: - an overview of various decision-making genres of arbitral tribunals: attitudinal, economic, strategic and legal; - the legal argumentation triptych of language–rhetoric–dialogue; - the specific language arbitrators have developed when interpreting the law; - how arbitrators use the concepts 'standards', 'rules', 'principles' and 'rights'; - the importance of the legal reasoning of arbitral awards and the role of rhetoric therein; - concepts of 'acceptability', 'audience' and 'legitimacy'; - limitations of the public international law interpretive methodology enshrined in the Vienna Convention; - interpretation of precedents, customary law, general principles of law and policies; - the way national and international legal orders interact in the context of interpretation; and - how decision-making is connected to the issues of predictability, consistency and the rule of law. The core of the book proposes a novel, full- edged dialogical network theory for analysing the interpretation process. As an exemplary demonstration of developing theory to keep up with practice, this unique book provides a deeply engaged means for enhancing the practice of international arbitration. Its introduction of a new field of interdisciplinary analysis employing legal argumentation theories is sure to provide inestimable guidance for institutions and policymakers, especially in light of recent proposals for the creation of a permanent investment arbitration court. Given that unveiling the legal decision-making process is critical for the well-being of the whole dispute resolution procedure, and that being aware of how arbitrators interpret the law can constitute a roadmap for counsel's arguments and approaches when dealing with cross-border disputes, the topic of this book is relevant for both academics and practitioners, and its signifcance can only grow as recourse to investor-state arbitration continues to expand.

Computational Models Of Argument

Release Date: 2008-01-01
Pages: 429
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This volume of Computational Models of Argument focuses on the aim to develop software tools to assist users in constructing and evaluating arguments and counterarguments and/or to develop automated systems for constructing and evaluating arguments and counterarguments. Some articles provide a valuable snapshot of the leading research questions in the area of computational models of argument, others draw on the wealth of research on the philosophical questions surrounding the notions arising in argumentation, or address knowledge representation and reasoning issues emerging from modeling argumentation. They also consider appropriate models of wider rhetorical issues arising in argumentation and propose and evaluate algorithmic solutions associated with generating and judging constellations of arguments. Included are articles proposing standards for exchanging information associated with argumentation so that different systems can work together. In addition, some articles report practical working tools for computational argumentation.

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Here’s the one-minute description of TQW: You have a Big Question of some kind. You know it’s a Big Question because it’s keeping you up at night, the outcome is important, and you don’t have a ready answer. There are four stages you need to go through to answer a Big Question. I don’t know where you are in the process; so let me describe the four stages. The first stage involves fully understanding your situation and your motives for wanting to resolve the question that comes from being in that situation. The second stage involves separating yourself from the situation you are in. You cannot resolve a situation if you see yourself as part of it. You have to gain perspective by separating yourself from your situation in as many ways as possible. The third stage involves letting go of something that keeps you attached to, and subject to, the situation you are in. Something is holding you back. Some fear, some projection of implications, some belief about what is possible and what is not possible. Something. As long as you hold onto these things they will hold you back. Fourth, you need to perceive new possibilities for resolving your Big Question. For various reasons, you are not able to see alternative resolutions today. You need to reframe your question in a way that will enable you to apply the substantial resources you have to address each and every part of the question. If you have a Big Question, you are stuck at one of those four stages. At which stage are you stuck? McClellan provides a complete roadmap for getting from the question you have to the question you need to answer. Dither no longer. Commit to the Total Question Workout. Address the Big Question you need to answer to take charge of running your business or your life. You can move forward. But first, you have to take the next step.
