Joanna Jemielniak publishes in Oxford Yearbook of International Law and Jurisprudence

Joanna Jemielniak publishes the article Pressure for Transparency and the Use of Arbitration Mechanisms in International Economic Dispute Resolution, in the Oxford Yearbook of International Law and Jurisprudence: Global Community 2015

This article examines the increased push for transparency in resolution of international economic disputes. It explores its connection with forum shopping and parallel proceedings across the fields of international economic law (trade law; investment treaty law and arbitration; international commercial arbitration). It analyses current transparency standards in WTO dispute resolution and recent developments in the fields of investment and commercial arbitration. The use of commercial arbitration venues and mechanisms for addressing inter-state trade controversies is discussed, and its possible connection with limited transparency standards is explored. The article challenges the popular view on commercial arbitration as a necessarily opaque dispute resolution mechanism and examines consequences of application of the public interest exception to the confidentiality and privacy procedural principles. It also discusses such projects as the permanent court or an appellate body for arbitral awards in investment disputes, or in commercial and investment ones, in which public interest is present.
