From Individual to Community Interest in International Investment Law

Show Summary Details

Preview

The protections granted to investors by international investment law would seem to epitomize individual interests. In fact, some of the criticism directed at investment law and especially investment arbitration is based on the charge that they serve the egoistical interests of big corporations often at the cost of a wider community. This chapter demonstrates that investment law is by no means exclusively governed by individual interests but is also receptive to community interest.
