The GAR Guide to Investment Treaty and Protection and Enforcement is a new guide on the practical side of investor–state disputes. It tracks the concept of investment protection throughout its lifecycle – from negotiation of the treaty to enforcement of an ward and everything in between. In doing so, it seeks to guide the reader in what to do and think – how to strategize - at every stage of a dispute, focusing on what works. The content is further enriched with a series of contributions from arbitrators, on topics du jour.
