Fair and Equitable Treatment in Investor-State Dispute Settlement: A New Interpretative Framework

The fair and equitable treatment (FET) standard has become the cornerstone of investor-state dispute settlement, and one of the most disputed notions in international business law. With investors facing increasing uncertainty, and states moving closer to denouncing treaties they see as limiting their sovereign right to regulate, FET has come to pose a significant risk to the entire investor-state dispute resolution system. This paper outlines an alternative way to consider FET, by acknowledging its thick and indeterminate character as a legal standard. It argues that previous traditional taxonomies have inherent limitations, and that practitioners should instead seek to understand the FET standard through the lens of the rule of law. The paper offers an analysis of the jurisprudence of the International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) to show that three principles of the rule of law – due process, legal certainty, and the prohibition of arbitrariness – constitute an operational and certain, yet flexible framework of interpretation for the application of the FET standard

Commercial courts occupy a highly specific position in the French judiciary landscape, since their judges are elected.French commercial court judges are not members of the legal professions but business executives and tradespeoplechosen by their peers. This encourages a pragmatic view that takes into account the economic constraints faced by companies. InFrance, certain courts of first instance,such asthe commercial courts, delegate the function of judgment to ordinary citizens, whereas in most courts of first instance, and the appeal courts Cour d’appel and Cour de cassation, only full-time professional magistrates can rule on the cases brought before the court

This Article comments the genesis and the content of the Italian law on civil partnerships between people of the same sex, enacted in May, 2016, and eventually entered into operation, together with a bunch of administrative regulations, in early 2017. As the last country of Western Europe to adopt such a law, the Italian law recognises civil partnerships for same-sex couples but presents several flaws in terms of equality and nondiscrimination based on sexual orientation
