Other panelists have talked about the increasing relevance of human rights to bilateral treaty arbitrations between governments and foreign investors. This is a very important development. However, my focus is on how to prevent the disputes that give rise to those arbitrations in the first place. If human rights are not addressed up front, in host state/foreign investor contract negotiations, they will come back to bite people, states, and investors. To do so, I want to talk about the 2011 UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, and their addendum, the Principles for Responsible Contracts.
