Young ICSID is pleased to host the launch of Procedural Issues in International Investment Arbitration, published by Oxford University Press.

Procedural issues are an area of increasing complexity and concern in modern investment arbitration, and one in which very little guidance currently exists. Indeed, there are a number of important points of departure from the procedural rules commonly adopted in the context of international commercial arbitration. Procedural Issues in International Investment Arbitration is the first text of its kind to address this gap, examining the most prevalent and controversial procedural issues that arise in investment arbitrations conducted under the ICSID, UNCITRAL, and other arbitral rules.

Written by Jeffery Commission and Rahim Moloo, the book takes the reader through an investment arbitration in chronological order, identifying each key procedural issue in turn and providing details of the relevant precedents. It charts the process of an arbitration from applicable law and first sessions right through to post-hearing applications and costs. Fully cross-referenced and tabled, Procedural Issues in International Investment Arbitration is an invaluable and practical guide to issues of increasing importance and relevance in ICSID and other arbitrations today.

The book launch will feature a panel discussion with:
- Jeffery Commission, Director, Burford Capital
- Rahim Moloo, Partner, Gibson Dunn
- Antonio Parra, former Deputy Secretary-General of ICSID
- Jan Paulsson, Founding Partner, Three Crowns LLP

Moderator, Meg Kinnear, Secretary-General, ICSID
