International Investment Treaties and Arbitration Across Asia

By Julien Chaisse and Luke Nottage (Eds.), Published by Brill | Nijhoff, December 2017

The book examines whether and how the Asian region has or may become a significant rule maker in international investment law and dispute resolution. The editors introduce foreign direct investment (FDI) trends and regulations, investment treaties and arbitration across Asia. The authors present country studies for the 10 member states of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) as well as an overview of ASEAN treaties. Two early chapters present econometric studies of treaty impacts on FDI flows, while two concluding chapters offer other normative and forward-looking perspectives. Available at
