Basic Documents on International Investment Protection

By Martins Paparinskis

In the last decade, the increase in the number and complexity of investor-State treaty arbitrations has attracted considerable attention from practitioners and academics to international investment protection law. Rules aimed at regulating the protection of foreign investment have been expressed in a decentralized manner, making a clear and comprehensive overview of the topic important. This textbook focuses on the relevant documents and provides an exhaustive treatment of relevant procedural and substantive issues. It includes documents explaining the historical development of investment law, substantive investment rules (multilateral and bilateral treaties, model documents, and general rules on the law of treaties and responsibility), and procedural investment rules (relating to the arbitral process in different fora, immunity, recognition, and enforcement). The book can be used both as a practitioners' handbook and as a classroom companion for courses on international dispute settlement and investment protection law.
