LEGU is delighted to open our 2022 speaker series with a guest talk from Dr Yuliya Chernykh to discuss her recently published monograph Contract Interpretation in Investment Treaty Arbitration. Contracts are relevant, frequently central, for a significant number of investment disputes. Yet, the way tribunals ascertain their content remains largely underexplored. How do tribunals interpret contracts in investment treaty arbitration? How should they interpret contracts? Does national law have any role to play? Contract Interpretation in Investment Treaty Arbitration: A Theory of the Incidental Issue addresses these questions. By proposing a theoretical frame for seamless integration of contract interpretation into the overall structure of decision-making, the book seeks to contribute to predictability, coherence, and precision of the tribunals’ interpretative practices in investment treaty arbitration.

Dr Yuliya Chernykh is Associate Professor of the Inland Norway University of Applied Sciences. Yuliya research questions related to the interpretation of legal texts (particularly, contract interpretation and treaty interpretation) and the intersections between national law and international law in international adjudication. She also works in the fields of contract law, legal theory and legal history. Yuliya is Chartered Arbitrator and has acted as arbitrator, expert and counsel in international arbitration proceedings under a number of European and Asian arbitration rules.
