International investment arbitraion in selected EU Member States Abstract This dissertation describes and analyzes the state of international investment arbitrations against selected EU Member States: the Slovak Republic, the Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary and Romania. The goal is to gain an overview of the current status of ongoing and completed arbitrations, the background of the dispute and its causes, BIT breach sued/found, compensations sued/awarded and the outcome of the dispute (including annulment proceedings and possibly proceedings before the CJ EU), as well as using the lessons learned in further practice, either in BIT negotiation or in arbitrations. The first chapter briefly explains what international arbitration is and briefly defines selected arbitration rules. Next, the chapter explains what international investment agreements are, what their purpose is and what their usual content is. Subsequently, the content of modern investment agreements is briefly described. The chapter further briefly recalls the accession process of the Slovak Republic to the EU, analyzes the principle of priority of EU law not only over national but also international law, defines the line of argumentation of the so-called intra EU BIT objections of the Slovak Republic in investment arbitrations, a brief analysis...

Tanchinwuttanakul, Kamol ; Balaš, Vladimír (advisor) ; Pauknerová, Monika (referee) ; Chovancová, Katarína (referee)
The commercial and investment relations between Thailand and the Czech Republic are longstanding. Currently, the Czech Republic imports a number of agricultural products and food from Thailand, and Thailand imports industrial technology from the Czech Republic. As a result, there are opportunities for Czech companies to invest in and establish business cooperation with Thai businesses with agreements to guarantee stable commercial investment relations between Thailand and the Czech Republic. Because of this, the Bilateral Investment Treaty (BIT) between both countries facilitates further development. The dissertation deals with research about the Protection of Investments under the Bilateral Investment Treaty between Thailand and the Czech Republic. The first BIT between Thailand and the Czech Republic was the 'Agreement between the Government of the Czech and Slovak Federal Republic and the Government of the Kingdom of Thailand for the Promotion and Protection of Investments (1991)' which was replaced by the 'Agreement between the Government of the Kingdom of Thailand and the Government of the Czech Republic for the Promotion and Protection of Investments (1994) (BIT between Thailand and the Czech Republic 1994), and this BIT is still in force and has not been modified or amended. The object of...

1 The Influence of EU Common Investment Policy on the System of International Investment Law Abstract Extending exclusive European Union (EU) competence to foreign direct investment (FDI) in the Lisbon Treaty has had profound implications. The EU began to develop its own investment policy, including negotiating either international investment agreements or comprehensive trade and investment agreements with third parties. Taking into account the magnitude of the EU economy and the fact that EU Member States have concluded almost 1 400 bilateral investment treaties (BITs) out of roughly 3 300 in force worldwide, the potential of European influence over the system of international investment, based principally on BITs, is enormous. The aim of this dissertation is to assess how and in which way the new EU competence changes the system. The EU investment policy has developed a specific approach towards investment protection and investment dispute mechanism which does not envision content declared at its beginning. According to initial documents such as the European Commission's Communication Towards a comprehensive European international investment policy, the Union should have followed the available best practices of the Member States. Nevertheless, during the first bilateral negotiations with Canada and...
The indirect expropriation of foreign investors
Poništiak, Ondrej ; Balaš, Vladimír (advisor) ; Ondřej, Jan (referee) ; Chovancová, Katarína (referee)
331 The indirect expropriation of foreign investors Abstract International trade has been booming among various types of states for several millennia. The development of international trade is influenced not only by these types of states, but also by the significant contribution of foreigners and the various entities they establish. The vision of expansion and opportunities related to new markets encourages them to abandon the explored and well-known domestic waters and plunge into foreign investment activities. The investment in the jurisdiction of a foreign host country entails several additional risks for the foreign investor in addition to the expected investment potential. These risks are related to different political, economic, legal, cultural and overall social backgrounds. Nevertheless, at the beginning of the 21st century, foreign investment is reaching staggering parameters. On a global level the total foreign direct investments amounted to USD 1.43 trillion in 2017. Of course, such an important social area is subject to regulation. Since about the middle of the 20th century, said regulation has included the standard of protection of foreign investors against indirect expropriation, which is the subject of the submitted thesis. This kind of expropriation is currently one of the most fundamental...

Vlachová, Barbora ; Balaš, Vladimír (advisor) ; Šturma, Pavel (referee) ; Chovancová, Katarína (referee)
Expropriation and investment protection Abstract This dissertation deals with the issue of protection of foreign investments, especially the issue of the expropriation of foreign investments. The basic terms related to investment protection and expropriation are defined. Legal expropriation and its conditions are described at first. In the case of illegal expropriation, the state is forced, besides compensation for expropriation, to cover the damage caused by the unlawful interference. The history of investment protection is briefly presented. The next chapter deals with the legal sources in which we can find conditions of expropriation and investment protection. Attention is paid to the legal regulation of expropriation in Czech law. The thesis also focuses on investment cases, where expropriation was the main issue. Finally, the disputes that are currently brought against Czech Republic by foreign investors are mentioned. The conclusion of the dissertation deals with the problems de lege ferenda and the expected development of the legal regulation. Key words: expropriation, investment protection, investment disputes
