This indispensable handbook is the first legal resource to gather together the most important cases and commentary no the increasingly significant subject of foreign investment disputes. It fills the need for a compilation of the basis source material into a well-organised and up-to-date volume covering the full scope of the subject.

The work provides broad coverage of all aspects of foreign investment disputes: the treaty system protecting investments, investment contracts and key clauses, forums for resolving investment disputes, political risk insurance, applicable law, principles of state responsibility, investor rights under investment treaties and customary international law, defenses to investor claims, reparations, procedure and proof, and enforcement of arbitral awards. Of particular value to practitioners are such features as the following:-

  • the most relevant excerpts from the most important cases dealing with foreign investment disputes
  • questions and comments prepared by the authors, who are senior lawyers and professors with vast experience and expertise in the subject matter
  • excerpts from decisions of the Overseas Private Investment Corporation interpreting the key terms of political risk insurance policies
  • key clauses in investment contracts.
