Since 2016, when the first issue of the European Investment Law and Arbitration Review was published, the Review has tracked developments in the new and increasingly important field of European investment law and arbitration.
The Review is still the only law journal that specifically focuses on the impact that EU law has on bilateral investment treaties (BITs) of EU member states, the Energy Charter Treaty (ECT) as well as the EU’s new generation trade and investment treaties such as the EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA).
In addition, the Review has been covering the work of the UNCITRAL Working Group III on investor-State dispute settlement reforms as well as other recent developments such as the impact of the Paris Agreement on foreign direct investments.
In short, the Review has developed into the main forum for the brightest legal minds in the field of European investment law and arbitration.
Therefore, the takeover of the Review by Wolters Kluwer from Brill marks an important milestone for the future development of the Review.
Indeed, as from 2024, the publication frequency of the Review will be doubled to two issues per year with in-depth examination of the most important legal issues affecting this field of law. The Review will continue to feature long and short articles as well as case notes and book reviews. In addition, a chronicle section will be included which will summarize the most recent developments.
Moreover, online pre-publication will be offered to all authors, meaning that approved articles will be made available online immediately. In addition, the Review will continue to be available in print as well as digitally on Kluwer Law Online.
Furthermore, the Review will be fully integrated into Kluwer Arbitration, thereby significantly expanding its visibility and availability for all users in the arbitration community.
The takeover of the Review is another important building block in the growing collection of analysis and case law on Investment Arbitration, confirming Kluwer Arbitration as the one-stop shop for arbitration research.
Accordingly, the overall impact of the Review will considerably increase.
