This EYIEL (European Yearbook of International Economic Law) special issue examines the interaction between international investment law and competition law. Although these two disciplines coexist regularly in international practice, scholarly analysis largely treats them as parallel universes, and as a result their actual and potential overlap has yet to be sufficiently explored.

In order to redress this issue, International Investment Law and Competition Law discusses a variety of topics, including the interaction between competition-related provisions and investment protection standards in free trade agreements; investors' anti-competitive behaviour and illegal investments in investment treaty arbitration; state aid schemes and foreign investors' legitimate expectations; EU member State compliance with investment awards as (illegal) state aid under EU law; State-owned enterprises and competitive neutrality; and interactions between public procurement, investment and competition law.
