Understanding investment treaties: The standards of protection commonly found in investment treaties

A video series by Hogan Lovells

Investment treaties are negotiated and entered into between states and operate to protect investors from state interference with their investments. In this short video, we highlight three of the most common investment protection standards, including the fair and equitable treatment standard; the prohibition on uncompensated expropriation; and "umbrella clauses."
