PhD thesis title: Awarding of Damages in International Investment Arbitrations

School: The City Law School


Research Supervisors: Prof Jason Chuah and Dr David Collins

Dogan's research concerns the general legal principles regarding the awarding of damages in international investment arbitrations, concentrating particularly on the scope and extent of an arbitral tribunal's jurisdiction and authority to award damages in investment arbitrations, particularly whether when awarding damages to an investor the arbitral tribunal is entitled to award non-pecuniary injury (i.e. moral damages) and, if so, the conditions for doing so. The principles applied in the calculation of damages and how such methods are applied in practice will also be considered in the thesis.

Dogan graduated from the University of Westminster Faculty of Law in 2009 with First Class Honours and obtained his LLM from University College, London in 2010 in Commercial Law. He then completed the Bar Professional Training Course at BPP London in 2011 (with two scholarships from The Honourable Society of Lincoln's Inn: The Sir Thomas More Bursary and Hardwicke Entrance Scholarship) and the Graduate Diploma in Turkish Law at Dokuz Eylul University in 2012.  Dogan was admitted to the Bar of England & Wales in 2011 and the Istanbul Bar Association in 2013. Dogan currently serves as one of the Regional Representatives for Europe of the Young International Arbitration Group (YIAG) of the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA).

Dogan's main areas of interest are international (commercial and investment) arbitration, civil procedure, commercial law and contract law.
