Farouk El-Hosseny, a senior associate at Three Crowns, recently authored Part 4, Chapter 14, of Public Participation and Foreign Investment Law: Volume 16, published on 28 January 2021. Farouk’s chapter, “Third Party Intervention at the Proposed Multilateral Investment Court,” explores the procedure of third party intervention for non-disputing parties who are affected by a given dispute, as contemplated before the proposed Multilateral Investment Court. In particular, by looking at the practice of third party intervention before other courts and tribunals, including investor-state tribunals and the International Court of Justice, the chapter explores the lessons that the proposed Court can draw so as to ensure implementation of that procedure in a manner that safeguards both equalities of arms and transparency.
