This chapter presents a case study based on the investment treaty arbitration Millicom v Senegal. It reflects on the interpretive dilemmas faced by that tribunal due to an ambiguously worded investment treaty, in particular with regard to a jurisdictional clause that appeared to require an additional act of consent by the host state. The analysis shows how the tribunal dealt with each of those dilemmas, and arrived at a consensus judgment by applying the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties.

Keywords:   investment treaty arbitration, Millicom v Senegal, treaty interpretation
