Abstract

Legal systems, inter-state dispute settlement, political risk insurance and regional human rights in settling investor state disputes. However, the book falls short in not covering international legal norms in more detail particularly those emanating from international and regional human rights law, as well as customary international law, which place legally enforceable and binding obligations on states to regulate in the public interest.
