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 continues, raising a host of issues regarding international investment law andpolicy, especially in the area of international investment disputes. This Yearbook monitors current developments in international investment law and policy, focusing (in Part One) recent trends and issues in foreign direct investment (FDI). Part Two, then addresses the fundamental developments inEuropean Union policy toward bilateral investment treaties, and helpfully annexes the key official European Union documents. 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.
Karl P. Sauvant is the Executive Director of the Vale Columbia Center on Sustainable International Investment at Columbia University and Lecturer-in-law, Columbia Law School.
