New Book on International Arbitration in Latin America

A new book on International Arbitration co-edited and co-authored by CCLS alumni.  


Felipe Sperandio

Gloria Alvarez (Comparative and International Dispute Resolution LLM, 2011; CCLS PhD, 2017) and Felipe Sperandio (Comparative and International Dispute Resolution LLM, 2011) have recently co-edited and co-authored  a pioneering book furnishing a comprehensive, in-depth analysis of critical issues arising from energy and natural resources disputes in Latin America.
Gloria and Felipe worked on this project alongside some key arbitration practitioners in the region and produced the first detailed book focused on the entire Latin American region, covering the treatment and examination of arbitration practice, including arbitrability, public order, enforcement, and the complex public-private nature of energy transactions.
Among the contributors of the book there is another alumni, Hugh Carlson (Comparative and International Dispute Resolution LLM, 2011) who wrote about the salient lessons in Venezuela in light of a number of disputes in the hydrocarbons sector.
Professor Maxi Scherer has commented: “It is the first (book) of its kind in the region and a must-have for anyone practicing international energy arbitration in Latin America and beyond”
