Show Summary Details


Chapter 4 offers a legal assessment of the orientation of EU foreign investment law. It identifies and analyzes the principles and objectives that determine the exercise of EU competence in the field of foreign investment. Chapter 4 offers firstly an insight into the specific principles and objectives that EU action in the field of foreign investment adheres to and pursues, emphasizing their position within the broader framework of the general objectives of EU external action. Secondly, Chapter 4 considers the application of these principles and objectives in practice, looking at the objectives pursued by existing (and future) EU International investment Agreements and assessing whether the legal mechanisms that are established in EU IIAs are suitable and sufficient for achieving the envisaged objectives.
