Investment Treaties and the Legal Imagination

How Foreign Investors Play By Their Own Rules

Nicolás M. Perrone

  • An innovative contribution to the debate on international investment law, one of the most controversial areas of the global economic order
  • Explores the contribution that business leaders, bankers, and international lawyers made to international investment law in the 1950s and 1960s, showing the continuity between their legal imagination and present investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS) practice
  • Analyzes foreign investor rights using a transnational and socio-legal approach to property rights and contracts
  • Provides a new perspective on influential ISDS awards, including recent cases involving local communities
