About this item

This book analyzes the interaction between international investment law and host states in terms of good governance, with a focus on developing countries. It considers international investment law from historical, doctrinal, and normative perspectives by looking at the evolution of the juridical foundations of emerging interpretations, questioning their normative and practical implications, and identifying the changing roles of various actors involved in the formation and functioning of the investment treaty regime. It draws on interviews with government officials and analysis of legislative data in developing states to challenge existing assumptions about the effects of international investment law on host states and outline real patterns of governmental behavior in developing countries, exploring whether investment treaty law can have a positive influence on host states by creating greater host compliance with good governance standards. It describes the emergence of good governance narratives in investment treaty practice and arbitral jurisprudence; the relationship between investment treaty disciplines and governmental conduct and how host states respond to investment treaty law, with case studies of Kazakhstan, Nigeria, Turkey, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan, as well as discussion of Peru, Colombia, and Brazil; the role of remedy design in inducing host states to comply with investment treaty standards of good governance, and whether investment treaty rules on liability are capable of inducing host states into compliance with treaty prescriptions of good governance; how investment treaty law lacks the characteristics needed to act as a mechanism showing acceptable standards of good governance; and the investment treaty regime’s failure to have more inclusive and participatory approaches.
