The Fair and Equitable Treatment Standard in International Foreign Investment Law

Ioana Tudor

Oxford Monographs in International Law

  • Gives an overview of more than 400 Bilateral Investment Treaties (BITs)
  • Contains an up-to-date analysis of the recent case law on international foreign investment
  • Suggests a standard FET clause as the smallest common denominator of all the varying concepts of fair and equitable treatment
  • Tackles the standard of fair and equitable treatment by applying four conceptual frames: the legal basis of FET, its nature as a standard, its content and finally the implications of its breach
