8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 728 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The secretariat of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) is implementing a programme on international investment arrangements. It monitors the trends in IIAs and analyzes the emerging issues and development implications. It seeks to help developing countries participate as effectively as possible in international investment rulemaking. ... This paper is part of the programme's research and policy analysis on international investment policies for development. ... The main objective of this paper is to update UNCTAD's 1998 study entitled Bilateral Investment Treaties in the Mid-1990s and to identify trends in the normative developments of each of the elements typically addressed in BITs since this last stocktaking in 1998. The study traces and explains the new issues that have emerged in recent BITs and also sets out the implications of those developments for developing countries."--Pref
Investor-state disputes arising from investment treaties a review ( )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 706 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 United Nations Conference on Trade and Development( )
6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 704 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
The protection of national security in IIAs ( )
3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 673 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 UNCTAD publication explores alternatives to investment treaty arbitration and finds that resolving disputes through negotiation or amicable settlement such as international conciliation or mediation and the use of dispute prevention policies can offer promising alternatives. The study encourages States, investors, legal practitioners, arbitration institutions and international organizations to further consider these methods of solving disputes in the context of international investment agreements and investment disputes emerging in the future

3 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
These studies explore the implications of the recent rise of a number of developing economies as locations of important foreign direct investment projects in research and development. Firms establish such operations in developing locations with the aim of accessing the skills of the host economies, adapting products to local markets and reducing their costs, in response to competitive pressures, technological changes and a more liberal trade and investment environment. Issues addressed include: the use of foreign direct investment versus contractual channels in acquiring innovative capacities in developing countries, the potential links of transnational corporations' research and development activities with the local innovation system of host countries, the likelihood of research and development spreading to new developing locations, and the kinds of host country policies that can facilitate diffusion of technologies from foreign affiliates activities to the local economy.--Publisher's description
Fair and equitable treatment ( Book )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In recent years, the concept of fair and equitable treatment has assumed prominence in investment relations between States. While the earliest proposals that made reference to this standard of treatment for investment are contained in various multilateral efforts in the period immediately following World War II, the bulk of the State practice incorporating the standard is to be found in bilateral investment treaties which have become a central feature in international investment relations. In essence, the fair and equitable standard provides a yardstick by which relations between foreign direct investors and Governments of capital-importing countries may be assessed. It also acts as a signal from capital-importing countries, for it indicates, at the very least, a State's willingness to accommodate foreign capital on terms that take into account the interests of the investor in fairness and equity."--Provided by publisher
