International Review of Law

(ISSN: 2223-859X)

Dr. Eduardo Pereira and Professor Talal Al-Emadi will edit a special issue on “Investments, transactions and disputes in the energy sector.”

About the special issue:
A variety of natural resources are affected by the low prices of their commodities and this has a natural effect on energy investments, transactions and disputes.

International Review of Law (IRL) encourages the submission of relevant papers, studies, and comments on various aspects of this subject. In particular, it seeks to focus on current and emerging legal frameworks governing investments, transactions and disputes in the energy sector, including international, regional and national legal frameworks. Potential topics could cover issues such as: regulation and governance; the role of international law and bodies, including multilateral, regional and/or bilateral agreements; the adequacy of legal regimes; the role of industry-based standards and guidelines; and issues of legal liability, dispute resolution and governing law. We welcome comparative legal approaches and multidisciplinary approaches to the topic. This special edition also seeks submissions of papers and studies on any other general or specific topics of interest that are relevant to investments, transactions and dispute in the energy sector.

The deadline for the submission of papers is 1 May 2017.  Submit at the following link:
