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.

The key protections afforded by investment treaties and the means by which those protections can be enforced are set out in a concise and accessible manner.
