Peter Muchlinski is Professor in International Commercial Law at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London. Prior to joining SOAS he was Professor of Law and International Business at Kent Law School, University of Kent (2001-5). He has taught at the London School of Economics (1983-1998), and was the Drapers' Professor of Law in the Law Department of Queen Mary and Westfield College, University of London, from 1998 to 2001. He specialises in international and European business law, international investment law, competition law, law and development and commercial regulation, in which fields he has authored numerous papers and articles. His more recent published work concentrates on the social dimension of the regulation of international business, with emphasis on human rights and multinational enterprises and upon the rebalancing of rights and obligations of host and home countries, and investors, in international investment agreements. He also has an interest in the relationship between international and comparative legal methodology and the process of globalization focusing, in particular, on international and comparative corporate law. He is the author of Multinational Enterprises and the Law (Second edition, Oxford University Press, 2007) and (with Julia Black and Paul Walker) editor of Commercial Regulation and Judicial Review (Hart Publishing, 1998). He is co-editor (with Dr Federico Ortino and Professor Christoph Schreuer) of the Oxford Handbook of International Investment Law (Oxford University Press, 2008). In 1990 he qualified as a barrister in the field of commercial and European law and is a door tenant at Brick Court Chambers, London. He acts as a principal adviser to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) on investment issues. During the period of June-October 2003 he was on leave of absence from Kent Law School and worked at UNCTAD in Geneva as a Senior Legal Expert in the Division on Investment Technology and Enterprise Development. He is Co-Rapporteur to the International Law Association Committee on the International Law on Foreign Investment and occasionally advises in international investment arbitrations.
