This course deals with (a) international investment decisions, international investment agreements or concessions, (b) the protection of international investments under these investment agreements or concessions, (c) the protection of international investments under bilateral investment treaties (BITs) and NAFTA, and (d) (to a lesser degree) with the ad hoc or ICSID arbitration facilities concerning investment disputes.
The essence of the course is the protection of international firms in their foreign investments, but also the scope for corporate misconduct, the impact of regulatory or other public policy requirements, and the various economic and political conflicts that may arise in this field.
