A Guide to State Succession in International Investment Law provides a comprehensive analysis of State succession issues arising in the context of international investment law. The author examines whether a successor State is bound by the investment treaties and State contracts which the predecessor State had signed with other States and foreign investors before the date of succession. Actors who are called upon to apply rules of State succession in investment arbitration cases will find this book a valuable source of practical guidance with strong theoretical foundations.

Chapter 2 provides a conceptual framework to the book. By identifying, describing and analysing the important concepts and issues, the chapter seeks to prepare a benchmark against which the theoretical and empirical findings presented in the following chapters should be assessed and analysed by readers. Most importantly, it conceptualises PPP in the context of WTO DSM as it puts forward the dispute settlement partnership approach as one of the key in-house strategies that can produce positive capacity-building results in developing countries.

Chapter 3 deals with the dispute settlement partnership experiences of the two most active users of WTO DSU: the US and the EU. The importance of this chapter stems from the fact that both the US and the EU enjoy a wealth of dispute settlement partnership experience, so much so that they can truly be considered as the leaders of the dispute settlement partnership approach. They have established a massive set-up for public-private interaction during dispute settlement, which can be considered in principle as a ‘formal’ partnership mechanism because it is built on a system of legal ‘rights and obligations’. The US and the EU are therefore important examples useful for understanding and examining the benefits and weaknesses of a formalised PPP arrangement as against an informal one.
