Abstract

"As demonstrated by this paper, the experience with the investor-state dispute settlement of a number of countries (mostly in the Asia-Pacific region) appears to have influenced the development of new international investment agreements (IIAs) by those countries. Observing how previous IIAs were interpreted and applied by arbitral tribunals, their governments have come up with new provisions and new language, which address most of the problems that arose in the context of investment disputes."--Publisher description

Abstract

This paper develops a model of child custody based on an incomplete-contract approach to the allocation of property rights. Because of the presence of transaction costs in marriage, altruistic parents cannot contract upon the investments they make into their children, but can reduce the resulting inefficiencies by determining ex ante the parent who would be allocated custody in case they divorce.

Abstract

The challenge for governments is to find an appropriate balance -- ensuring a sufficient level of protection for its national security interests, while at the same time ensuring that investment protection is still strong enough to keep the country attractive for foreign investors. The review undertaken for this study suggests that up to now, only a minority of IIAs [International investment agreements] contain some kind of national security exception, and that such clauses are more frequent in agreements covering the entry of foreign investment than in treaties limited to the post-establishment phase. IIA Contracting Parties have various options to clarify the scope and conditions under which a national security exception applies. All these options help to prevent the subject of national security exceptions in IIAs from becoming a "black and white" matter, and allow more differentiated solutions to be adopted, permitting a fair balance between the interests of the Contracting Parties and the foreign investors.--Publisher's description
