Book description

Developments within various sub-fields of international law influence international investment law, but changes in investment law also have an impact on the evolution of other fields within international law. Through contributions from leading scholars and practitioners, this book analyses specific links between investment law and other sub-fields of international law such as the law on armed conflict, human rights, sustainable development, trade, development and EU law. In particular, this book scrutinises how concepts, principles and rules developed in the context of such sub-fields could inform the content of investment law. Solutions aimed at resolving problems in other settings may provide instructive examples for addressing current problems in the field of investment law, and vice versa. The underlying question is whether key sub-fields of public international law, notably international investment law, are open to cross-fertilisation, or, whether they are evolving further into self-contained regimes.


'With no doubt, this book offers contemporary starting points for further analysis, as well as solid contributions in different topics of international investment law. This will foster discussions and that can be used to support or oppose ideas and arguments put forward in our own papers and research in this area. Altogether, this is an essential reading for all students, researchers, practitioners and scholars who face questions about the relationship between foreign investment law and other areas of international law.'

'This book is commendable for offering access to the insights of leading scholars from diverse backgrounds who discuss a subject that has not been widely explored before. Investor-state arbitrations have grown tremendously in the last two decades and this book is a mustread for practitioners, researchers, and students of investment law and international arbitration.'
