ABSTRACT OF PAPER
 
Title of Paper:
The Changing Energy Landscape: Keeping legal reform current
 
Paper Proposal Text :
This research focuses on the changing energy landscape in the Gulf and its strategic implications with respect to large scale commercial contracts (involving various types of energy: mineral, petrol, coal, natural gas) and the fact that most of these contracts fall under investor-State arbitration they are therefore governed by a legal framework that must evolve with the commercial needs of both the investor and the government party.
This research is based on a completed PhD dissertation, soon to be published with Springer, as well 27 published research papers, several opinion editorials and legal advice given by me to heads of state and counsel involved in billion dollars commercial contracts.
