September 2020: Brussels Office Lawyer Analyzes the Public Order Exception in Newly Published Book

Firm News

Dr. Zena Prodromou, Senior Associate in Quinn Emanuel’s Brussels office, recently published The Public Order Exception in International Trade, Investment, Human Rights and Commercial Disputes.  Parties to international disputes increasingly invoke the need to protect the domestic public order to justify actions otherwise in breach of their obligations under international law.  The term “public order” nevertheless remains unclear, as do the criteria and factors against which different international dispute bodies assess parties’ claims.  Dr. Prodromou’s book is the first to present, systematize and synthesize all relevant jurisprudence in this field of law and provides practical insights to any party wishing to invoke the public order exception in international trade, investment, human rights or commercial disputes.
