This case comment discusses an investor-state arbitral award rendered under the bilateral investment treaty between Kenya and the United Kingdom. The dispute relates to a mining project in Kenya. The award addresses questions of investor compliance with national law, and the implications of investor non-compliance for investor-state dispute settlement. The issues resonate with wider debates about balancing investor rights and obligations in the international investment regime.
