About the Authors
  • The negotiation of a patchy but burgeoning network of international investment agreements and the increasing use to which they are put is generating a growing body of jurisprudence which, while still evolving, requires closer analytical scrutiny. Drawing on many of the most distinguished voices in investment law and policy, and offering novel, multidisciplinary perspectives on the rapidly evolving landscape shaping international investment activity and treaty-making, this book explores the most important economic, legal and policy challenges in contemporary international investment law and policy. It also examines the systemic implications flowing from frenetic recent judicial activism in investment matters and advances several innovative propositions for how best to promote greater overall coherence in rule-design, treaty use and policy making and thus offer a better balance between the rights and obligations of international investors and host states.

    • Provides readers with an informed discussion of the rapidly evolving field of international investment law and policy
    • Analyses the main issues concerning international investment relations from a multidisciplinary perspective
    • Brings together the world's leading scholars drawn from business, economics, law and political science with vast experience in the field of international investment law and policy and international trade regulation

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Overall, Mr Echandi and Mr Sauvé have put together a significant publication; concise, informative and refreshing to read. Its content is insightful, wide reaching and flirts with the utmost frontier of international investment law. Although an abundance of works address the subject, this volume stands out as a text from which both practitioners and academics may equally benefit and draw inspiration."
    Carlos Humberto Garcia Guzman and Christian Campbell, Transnational Dispute Management
