International Investment Law

Provided by: UMA
Master's degree (EQF level: 7)

This module will focus on the international law concerned with the regulation of foreign investments and the settlement of disputes between foreign investors and host States. Students will gain an overview of the evolution of international investment law and the development of legal instruments that seek to promote and protect investments abroad. By studying investment arbitration case law, students will familiarize themselves with bilateral, regional and multilateral investment treaties, their legal principles, regulatory approaches and procedural mechanisms of resolving investor-State disputes by international arbitration. Throughout the course, we will examine the problem of balancing the right to regulate in the public interest and the need for investment protection, which has become a key component of negotiations on new international investment treaties around the world.
