ESIL Reflection: The Ethics and Empirics of Double Hatting
"Double hatting" refers to the phenomenon where one individual has several roles in international Investment arbitration. ""Langford, Behn and Hilleren Lie examine the practice of double hatting in the specific context of international investment arbitration. They ask three questions: how widespread is the practice; when is it a problem; and what can be done? In doing so, they introduce and develop new empirical findings but also make links between investment arbitration and broader practices in international adjudication.
