Article “Challenge of Arbitrators in International Investment Arbitration”

Our associate Rimantas Daujotas has publsihed his latest publication “Challenge of Arbitrators in International Investment Arbitration”, which was recently released in the periodical scientific law journal of Vilnius University “VU mokslo darbai. Teisė”.

The article discusses the standard of successful challenge procedure of ICSID arbitrators and whether the cause of the small number of successful challenges is due to the provisions of the ICSID Convention or whether it is down to the reluctance of arbitrators to apply external standards, such as the Guidelines on Conflicts of Interest in International Arbitration (IBA Guidelines). The author analyzed the interpretation of the ICSID Convention as well as the practice of challenge procedures in ICSID practice.
