'Foreign State Immunity and Enforcement of Arbitral Awards in English Courts' by Monica Feria-Tinta, forthcoming book to be published by Oxford University Press

This is an archived article, and some links may not work. Contact us if you have any questions.

As foreign direct investment grows, so too does the number of disputes between states and investors. Increasingly these disputes are resolved by international arbitration proceedings but once resolved, the enforcement of awards against states brings its own challenges. Whilst enforcement of arbitral awards should be ‘almost a matter of administrative procedure’ (to use the language of PetroChina International (Hong Kong) (Corp Ltd [2011]), immunities remain to some, a ‘hurdle’, adding complexity to that process. This upcoming book gives the reader the key to understanding the principles governing such a notion in the context of enforcement of arbitral awards.

In 'Foreign State Immunity and Enforcement of Arbitral Awards in English Courts', Monica Feria-Tinta provides the first systematic examination of the principles and case-law relating to state immunity in the context of enforcement of international arbitral awards before English courts.

Monica Feria-Tinta specializes in public international law and international arbitration. She acts for States, international organisations, and private parties before English courts, international courts, and arbitral tribunals under a variety of rules (ICSID, UNCITRAL, SIAC and ICC). Monica has particular expertise in all areas of immunity and has advised on immunity cases before the High Court and the Court of Appeal. Her scholarly work has been cited before the International Court of Justice and her public international law expertise was recognized by The Hague Academy of International Law by awarding her the prestigious Diploma in International Law. 

'Foreign State Immunity and Enforcement of Arbitral Awards in English Courts' will be published by Oxford University Press in Summer 2018.
