Investment Treaty Arbitration


Dr Marek Świątkowski

Significant changes in the area of international arbitration concerning the protection of foreign investments which have taken place during the last 30−40 years have influenced arbitration in Poland. This chapter will describe the Polish legal environment of investment arbitration, in particular matters concerning Poland being a place of investment arbitration or a country in which the award rendered by an investmet tribunal is enforced. It will also discuss issues related to Poland being a defendant in investment arbitration proceedings. It should be emphasized that although Poland has not been chosen as a place of investment arbitration yet, there are no legal obstacles for investment disputes to be resolved before the Court of Arbitration at the Polish Chamber of Commerce or any other arbitral tribunal in Poland.
