There are two ways of thinking about institutional choice in the context of multilateral investment law reform. One starts from abstract principles, asking what policy goal investment law is supposed to achieve and what institutional choice most effectively advances that goal.

In this essay, I will scrutinize their analysis and argue that the latter, bottom-up approach is more promising.
