Toward the Construction of an International Regime to Protect Foreign Investment

Teresa Gutierrez Haces, Adelina Quintero Sánchez

Abstract


In this article, the authors present a holistic vision of the evolution and transformation of the international regime for investment seen through the prism of international relations. Although currently it is not backed by any multinational organization, the current regimen is derived from the norms emanating from different agreements on investment and the extensive participation of nations in those accords. This international regime has gone through different stages and is now at a crucial point in its development because it is facing very strong criticism of its main tenets, with the particular participation of developing countries.
