The regulatory framework for investment: where are we headed?

Sauvant, Karl P.

Governments throughout the world have sought, and are seeking, to attract foreign direct investment and, for that purposed, have liberalized their national regulatory frameworks for FDI and established a strong international investment law regime. However, there are signs that, as a result of a number of important developments (which are being discussed in some detail in this chapter), governments are reevaluating their stance toward FDI, or at least certain types of it. This re-evaluation has found its expression in a number of regulatory changes that may eventually lead to a regime that balances the rights of investors and host countries in a manner that places more emphasis on maintaining policy space for host country governments while still protecting foreign investors
