Abstract
This chapter examines the complex relationship between the European Union and its Member States in investor-state arbitration. It first sets out the reasons why the issue of procedural status is of considerable importance for the different actors involved. It then turns to future EU investment treaties and highlights the issues relating to procedural status that need to be addressed in such treaties, including the limits on investor-state arbitration stemming from the interaction between EU law and international investment law, and the relations between investment arbitration and dispute settlement in the EU legal order. Finally, it discusses the impact of the new competence in Article 207 TFEU on investor-state arbitrations under existing investment treaties of Member States.
