This seminar provides an overview of the international investment process from start to finish, examining the perspectives of the relevant legal institutions and instruments, their interactions, and the oftentimes competing objectives. The international investment landscape includes at least four constituencies: governments, investors, advocates, and adjudicators. Governments invite, promote, and regulate investments. Investors make, manage, and divest investments. Advocates advise and influence governments and investors. Adjudicators determine the existence and consequences of wrongful acts relating to investment. The landscape is best appreciated when viewing the constituencies in light of their interplay and, in turn, the legal devices they use in advancing their overlapping agendas. Starting with political stability and policies that welcome foreign investment, the course will proceed to review the investment-making process and dynamics, regulation and sustainability, disputes and remedies, and investments’ broader geopolitical setting.
