New JIDS issue, on empirical research in investment arbitration

We have published, late last week, a special issue of the Journal of International Dispute Settlement on Empirical Studies on Investment Disputes. I’m nearly always proud of what I do, because the expectations are low to start with, but this thing makes me particularly happy. I think it shows, once again, how much and how easily we lawyers can learn from our neighbours’ disciplines – in this case political science, economics, development studies. That’s also, quite precisely, why we are now extending the overall purview of the journal  beyond strict legal approaches, to include relevant areas in the social sciences and humanities. This special issue marks that extension. There’ll be more of it.

To help us make the point, Oxford University Press kindly suggested to make this issue free to read online for a month, starting about now I think.

So here’s what we have in the issue:
