Most-favoured-nation treatment by United Nations Conference on Trade and Development( Book )

11 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The paper contains an explanation of MFN treatment and some of the key issues that arise in its negotiation, particularly the scope and application of MFN treatment to the liberalization and protection of foreign investors in recent treaty practice ... The paper provides policy options as regards the traditional application of MFN treatment and identifies reactions by States to the unexpected broad use of MFN treatment, and provides several drafting options, such as specifying or narrowing down the scope of application of MFN treatment to certain types of activities, clarifying the nature of "treatment" under the IIA, clarifying the comparison that an arbitral tribunal needs to undertake as well as a qualification of the comparison "in like circumstances" or excluding its use in investor-State cases."--Provided by publisher

Investor-state disputes arising from investment treaties : a review by United Nations Conference on Trade and Development( Book )

4 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The settlement of disputes between investors and the states in which they operate is a key aspect of the system of investment protection established in international investment agreements. Thus, the majority of international investment agreements contain provisions on investor-state dispute settlement. These provisions have been increasingly used in recent years, and this has resulted in more arbitral awards. This paper takes stock of, and analyzes, the nature and implications of this trend. In particular, it considers not only the statistical aspects of this development, but also the effects of arbitral decisions on the evolution of dispute settlement procedures under international investment agreements and on the interpretation and further refinement of the substantive standards of protection that they contain.--Publisher's description
International investment arrangements : trends and emerging issues by UNCTAD India( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The past few years saw a proliferation of international investment agreements (IIAs) at the bilateral, regional and interregional levels, presenting new challenges for policymakers. As global economic integration becomes ever deeper, managing the impacts of integration on the domestic economy becomes more complex and the challenges greater. This paper provides an overview of some of the issues that arise as countries seek to ensure policy coherence in the face of a complex network of overlapping IIA provisions. --Publisher's description

Taxation and technology transfer : key issues by United Nations Conference on Trade and Development( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Technology is often packaged in the form of tangible assets, intangible property, and knowledge and skills. These different forms of technology may be transferred from one country to another through trade in tangible and intangible assets, the provision of services or licensing and leasing agreements, and also as part of foreign direct investment (FDI). These different modes of transfer and methods of payments may give rise to different tax obligations. This study examines the implications of various tax instruments on the transfer of technology from the perspective of both technology importing and exporting countries. It also identifies some of the tax-related policy instruments that can be used to promote technology transfer to developing countries.--Publisher's description
The protection of national security in IIAs( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The challenge for governments is to find an appropriate balance -- ensuring a sufficient level of protection for its national security interests, while at the same time ensuring that investment protection is still strong enough to keep the country attractive for foreign investors. The review undertaken for this study suggests that up to now, only a minority of IIAs [International investment agreements] contain some kind of national security exception, and that such clauses are more frequent in agreements covering the entry of foreign investment than in treaties limited to the post-establishment phase. IIA Contracting Parties have various options to clarify the scope and conditions under which a national security exception applies. All these options help to prevent the subject of national security exceptions in IIAs from becoming a "black and white" matter, and allow more differentiated solutions to be adopted, permitting a fair balance between the interests of the Contracting Parties and the foreign investors.--Publisher's description

The present first volume of the World Report on Regional Integration is a timely product of the research undertaken at UNU-CRIS. This new series of World Reports will certainly contribute to the discussion on the interaction between regional
