Description

Today, international investment law consists of a network of multifaceted, multilayered international treaties that, in one way or another, involve virtually every country of the world. The evolution of this network raises a host of issues regarding international investment law and policy, especially in the area of international investment disputes. This Yearbook monitors current developments in international investment law and policy, focusing on recent trends and
issues in foreign direct investment (FDI). It then discusses regulatory and policy developments regarding FDIs in extractive industries, with an additional focus on the extent of protection afforded by international investment treaties. With contributions by leading experts in the field, this title
provides timely, authoritative information on FDI that can be used by a wide audience, including practitioners, academics, researchers, and policy makers.

Review quote

"The Yearbook on International Investment Law & Policy has become an institution in international investment law and policy scholarship. For good reason: it monitors developments in the field and typically comprises an excellent selection of papers from academics, practitioners and policymakers. The fourth and most recent volume is no exception to this rule. The Yearbook is a seminal contribution to the study of the development of international investment law and policy, and should be on every investment lawyer's essential reading list."
