Considering Recalibration of International Investment Agreements: Empirical Insights

Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter explores the need to recalibrate investment agreements by drawing on empirical insights. In particular, it explores the impact of the integrity of the process of resolving investment treaty disputes via arbitration by looking at the effect of a respondent state's development status on outcome. It then explores the potential impacts for recalibrating both procedural and substantive investment rights. The chapter concludes that, at least as regards procedural rights, the initial research suggests dispute resolution rights may not need recalibration.

Keywords: investment agreements; dispute resolution; arbitration; investment rights; international investement
