International Investment Law regulates the entry and operation of foreign investment and is one of the fastest-growing fields of Public International Law. The increase in the numbers of Bilateral Investment Treaties; the inclusion of investment chapters in Regional Trade Agreements; the growth in South-South Investments; and the increase in the numbers of investment disputes, make this an important field of study and legal practice.
There has been exponential growth in the number of investment treaties and the invocation of their unique systems of dispute settlement over the last 30 years. Because foreign investment often involves a host State, in related disputes public international law principles apply alongside the commercial interests of private parties.
This subject begins by tracing the historical, political and economic causes for the protection of foreign investment across custom, bilateral and regional investment treaties. It then focuses on the unique system of dispute resolution in this field, which gives private (foreign) actors the right to pursue claims for damages against states.
Most international investment law and dispute resolution courses interrogate the issues arising from this field from the perspective of capital-exporting states and foreign investors. This course will give you a detailed understanding of the major forms of dispute settlement in the field and their similarities and differences with respect to commercial arbitration.
