Chapter Summary

Thomas Wälde was, first and foremost, a complete thinker. Having started his career and having specialized in the field of natural resources, he found a natural flow of the mind in questions of international investment law and international arbitration. A number of Thomas Wälde works in international arbitration have become indispensable readings. In particular, Thomas Wälde's extensive and early writings on the Energy Charter Treaty (ECT) constitute the best analysis on the topic. The variety of the contributions published by Thomas' friends perplexingly reflects the diversity of Thomas' interests: Wälid Benhamida addresses international investment arbitration arising from domestic law, followed by Sophie Nappert and Andrea Bjorklund's reflections on the fragmentation of international law, Hans van Houtte's analysis of private war damage claims and the Eritrea-Ethiopia Claims Commissions, Giuditta Cordero Moss's investigation into the translation law of contracts and Mark Kantor's views on the negotiated settlement of public infrastructure disputes.

Keywords: international arbitration; international investment law; Thomas Wälde
