Authored Publication: Rajah & Tann Singapore contributes a chapter on fair and equitable treatment in the Sixth Edition of the Investment Treaty Arbitration Review.

Our leading International Arbitration Partners Andre Yeap S.C., Kelvin Poon, and Matthew Koh, along with David Isidore Tan (Senior Associate) and Daniel Ho (Associate), have authored a chapter titled “Fair and Equitable Treatment” in the Sixth Edition of the Investment Treaty Arbitration Review. This is part of The Law Reviews series, published by Law Business Research Ltd.

The chapter discusses the fair and equitable treatment (“FET“) standard in investment protection treaties, which remains at the core of states’ obligations and thus often arises in investor–state disputes. Although the FET standard is often left undefined, tribunals have elaborated on this standard to develop both substantive and procedural principles. The chapter reviews the FET standard and how it has been applied in some recent cases.

The full chapter can be read here.
