Investment Arbitration Reporter is a news and analysis service focusing on international arbitrations between foreign investors and their host governments.
Our editorial mission is to broaden what is known about international investment claims, legal rulings, and policy developments. Thanks to our focus on original, high-quality content, our service has long been the go-to source for news about previously-unreported claims and rulings.
In addition to a large and diverse subscriber base, our original reporting often inspires follow-up coverage by mainstream media publications.
Luke Eric Peterson (Editor) first became interested in international investment agreements when a flurry of arbitrations were filed in the 1990s pursuant to the NAFTA. He was fascinated by the sheer volume of these international treaties and the surprising lack of information about their use by investors. Over time, he came to specialize in investigating and reporting on claims under these treaties, both as a freelance journalist for media outlets such as the Financial Times and The Economist, and as a specialized researcher for various organizations (including the UNDP, UNCTAD, Chatham House, and the IISD). His writings have also appeared in various scholarly and practitioner publications, including ICSID Review, Stockholm International Arbitration Review, and Arbitration International.
Jarrod Hepburn has been a regular contributor since 2009. He is in the final stages of his doctoral studies at the University of Oxford, UK, working on issues of international investment law and arbitration. His writings appear in a range of international law texts published by Cambridge University Press, Kluwer Law International and Edward Elgar, and in academic journals including the Journal of World Investment and Trade. He is qualified to practise law in Australian federal and state jurisdictions.
Annalise Nelson practiced litigation for 3 years before becoming a consultant on international law issues. She is currently a Visiting Scholar in International Law at George Washington University and works with that institution's Human Rights Clinic. She has been a law clerk to two Judges on the International Court of Justice, and also serves as a law clerk to an ICSID arbitrator in cases involving the Republics of Argentina and Serbia.
Lise Johnson is the Lead Researcher on Investment Law and Policy issues for the Vale Columbia Center on Sustainable International Investment in New York City. In her current role, and as a former advisor to several non-governmental organizations, she has pushed for stronger transparency requirements in investor-state arbitration. Lise practiced litigation for four years prior to moving into research and analysis in this field.
