Edited by Shaheeza Lalani, World Trade Institute, University of Bern, and Rodrigo Polanco, World Trade Institute, University of Bern

Edited by Shaheeza Lalani and Rodrigo Polanco Lazo, <em>The Role of the State in Investor-State Arbitration</em> is a collection of contributions from lawyers, arbitrators and political scientists on the development of the concept of the “State” in a field that currently presents an increasing number of controversial disputes: Investor-State Arbitration.
The book analyses the limits of the host State as a regulator, studying issues such as attribution and the role of State-Owned Enterprises and sub-State entities; the changing role of the home State in Investor-State disputes, including its direct participation in Investor-State arbitration and State to State dispute settlement; and the overall role that both home and host States can play in the improvement of Investor-State Dispute Settlement.
