The Yearbook on International Investment Law & Policy 2012-2013
The Yearbook on International Investment Law & Policy is an annual publication which provides a comprehensive overview of current developments in the international investment law and policy field, focusing on recent trends and issues in foreign direct investment (FDI), investment treaty practice, and investor-state arbitration.
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. The Yearbook on International Investment Law & Policy 2012-2013 monitors current developments in international investment law and policy, focusing on recent trends and issues in foreign direct investment (FDI). 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.
Contributions to the Yearbook on International Investment Law & Policy 2012-2013 cover the 2012-2013 trends in international investment agreements, the Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) trends, and the challenge of investment policies for outward FDI, as well as a review of 2012 international investment law and arbitration. This edition contains essays from the Symposium on Sustainable Development and International Investment Law: Bridging the Divide. Also included are general articles providing an analysis of arbitral tribunal practice regarding the applicable law to state contracts under the ICSID Convention in the Twenty First Century; the role of municipal laws in investment arbitration; the status of state-controlled entities under international investment law, the US and the Trans-Pacific partnership (TPP); new 2012 US Model BITs; and the Regulation of FDI in Bolivia. This volume concludes with the winning memorials from the 2012 FDI International Moot Competition.
