AuthorVandevelde, Kenneth J
TitleBilateral Investment Treaties in the Mid-1990s
Imprint Geneva : United Nations, 1998
Descript xii, 305 p. : graphs, tables


Summary: This new book analyzes the ever-growing universe of bilateral investment treaties: in fact, two-thirds of the treaties currently in force have been signed after 1990. The introductory chapter looks at the origin and evolution of these treaties. The second chapter analyzes the process of negotiating a bilateral investment treaty. The third chapter reviews the wide range of provisions involved. The fourth chapter explores, on the basis of an econometric test, the impact of such treaties on foreign direct investment flows. The conclusions of the book, presented in chapter five, are dealing with the basic similarities and differences of existing treaties, the experience with the application of bilateral investment treaties, with their links with general investment rules, and with the development dimension.
