International Investment Agreements: Key Issues, Volume 1

Front Cover
The number of international investment agreements (IIAs) continues to grow as the use of foreign direct investment (FDI) flows has become a key part of our globalised economy, with for example, almost two bilateral investment treaties added every week during 2004. This publication is the first of a three volume compilation of papers to aid negotiators and policy-makers, in particular from developing countries, with issues arising in discussions of IIAs. This volume contains 12 chapters which cover a range of issues including: an overview of key trends; scope and definition; admission and establishment; most-favoured nation treatment; fair and equitable treatment; taking of property; transfer of funds; transparency; and dispute settlement.
