International Arbitration in the Energy Sector

International Arbitration in the Energy Sector – Seminar and Book Launch

Arbitrations frequently arise in the international energy sector and often involve complex issues such as security and sovereignty. Alongside these developments, climate and sustainable development disputes raise important questions about enforcing sustainability objectives on individuals, corporations, and states.

International Arbitration in the Energy Sector puts international energy disputes into a global context, providing broad coverage of different forms and systems of dispute resolution across both renewable and non-renewable sectors.

To celebrate the launch, 39 Essex Chambers and Oxford University Press will be hosting a seminar at which a number of the contributors will give presentations related to their respective chapters. The seminar will be followed by a drinks reception.
