Czasopismo Transnational Dispute Management (TDM) zaprasza do przesyłania tekstów do nowego specjalnego numeru zatytułowanego "Judicial Measures and Investment Treaty Law". Redaktorzy numeru są szczególnie zainteresowani następującymi tematami:
- Should a distinction be drawn between judiciaries in common law (where activist judges can make and change the application law) and civil law jurisdictions?
- Is denial of justice the only substantive standard theory of liability for judicial measures?
- In the absence of a denial of justice, are there other treaty standards, such as judicial expropriation, breach of the minimum standard of treatment requirement or the fair and equitable treatment requirement, or a failure to provide effective means of asserting claims, available to a foreign investor for asserting claims arising out of a judicial act (or omission)?
- If so, what should be the contours and parameters of these treaty standards?
- What should be the default remedy for judicial measures such as judicial expropriation? Should it be compensation, restitution of property rights, or are there other potential remedies available to a foreign investor?
- And if there are other treaty standards available to a foreign investor for asserting claims arising out of a judicial act or omission, is it still necessary to exhaust local remedies?
- Should a claim based on judicial expropriation be allowed where a judicial decision determined that a property right was invalid under domestic law?
- Should a fundamental shift in jurisprudence such as in the Eli Lily case result in an expropriation claim against the host state?
- What jurisdictional and merits defences are available to sovereign states in claims arising out of judicial measures?
