The Journal of World Investment & Trade (JWIT) is pleased to announce a call for papers for its Special Issue on “The Latin American Challenge to the Current System of Investor-State Dispute Settlement.” The deadline for submission is June 30, 2015, with the final paper due November 30, 2015.

The Special Issue ‘The Latin American Challenge to the Current System of Investor-State Dispute Settlement’ will use current developments and the proposed design of [Union of South American Nations] UNASUR’s investment dispute settlement centre, as an example of the Latin American ‘challenge’ to investment arbitration and place it within the wider context of reform of investor-state dispute settlement as evidenced elsewhere in the world. It will prioritise critical and theoretical (rather than descriptive) approaches that will guarantee a scientific interest in the volume long after its publication date.
