In this complex area of law a concise and practical guide has been missing - until now. A Practical Guide to Investment Treaties: Asia Pacific offers an explication of the core principles of international investment law, as affected by a bilateral or a multilateral investment treaty.

Containing an analysis of the key protections in over 500 treaties involving States from the Asia-Pacific region, this text provides an introduction to the structure, content, and application of those treaties, with a focus on the experiences and future of this field in the region.
