About this book


The topic of this book is the participation of the EU in international dispute settlement. It aims to

provide the reader with an appraisal of the most problematic aspects connected with the participation

of a sui generis legal subject such as the EU to international dispute settlement mechanisms

in a State-centric international law.

In particular, the publication dwells on the question of how to make possible an effective participation

in disputes while at the same time preserving the specific characteristics (i.e. the autonomy) of

the EU legal order. It does so by outlining different models and proposing the internalization model

adopted under EU investment agreements as a possible paradigm.

It is aimed at academics, practitioners and graduate students as well as EU officials and judges who

should find the issues discussed both useful and of interest for staying up-to-date on the scholarly

discussion and of their relevance to case law.

Luca Pantaleo is a Lecturer in International and European Law at The Hague University of
