Every day the week of 26-30 July, we will be releasing short videos providing an introduction to investment protection under investment treaties.
With more than 2,000 investment treaties in force worldwide, the protections contained in investment treaties can be a valuable tool for investors in foreign jurisdictions. Investment treaties can often operate as a means of getting a government to the negotiating table while providing a route to dispute resolution before an international tribunal if disputes cannot be resolved by negotiation.
In our video series, you will hear from Markus Burgstaller, Maria Eugenia Ramirez, and Scott Macpherson on some key facets of investment protection under investment treaties. In particular, they discuss how investors can leverage investment treaties as a tool in their dealings with foreign governments and how investment treaties provide protection against state interference with investments.
While investment protection has traditionally been perceived as being used primarily by the extractive industries, our speakers also analyze how it may be utilized by emerging global investors, such as in the tech sector.
In this short video, we provide an overview of investment protection under investment treaties to help protect your foreign investments. We explain what investment treaties are, who is protected by them, and what type of investments are protected.
