Biography

Dr Cameron Miles is a Fellow at the Centre for International Governance and Dispute Resolution. He is also a leading barrister at 3 Verulam Buildings practicing in public international law and investment treaty arbitration and splitting his time between domestic and international courts and tribunals. In England, he has appeared in the High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court on difficult points of state immunity and treaty interpretation. Elsewhere, he has appeared before the International Court of Justice and the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea, as well as tribunals organised under the auspices of the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes and Permanent Court of Arbitration,.

Cameron regularly publishes and lectures in public international law in the UK and internationally. His monograph, Provisional Measures before International Courts and Tribunals (published by Cambridge University Press in 2017) remains the leading text on interim relief in international law and is regularly cited as an authority before international courts and tribunals. His current research is focused on the question of implied terms in treaties and aims to develop a principled framework, drawn from the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties, under which a treaty’s content may legitimately be said to stretch beyond the words on the page. Together with Professor Philippa Webb, he is also developing a provision-by-provision commentary on the State Immunity Act 1978.
