The international legal protection to the investors against the actions of the host-state may emanate from any organ of the host-state, and it may be related to any function of the state, whether legislative, executive, or judicial. However, given the peculiar nature of the judicial acts, questions have been frequently raised about how far these ‘independent’ acts can be subjected to investment claims before the ‘international’ investment treaty tribunal. In this backdrop, this pioneering and award-winning work addresses the above significant need by critically examining the investment claims involving the Judicial acts in investment treaty arbitration.
