Reafirmación de Control sobre el Régimen de Tratados de Inversión

Los Estados están buscando muchas vías para contener el régimen internacional de las inversiones, que según se percibe, se ha salido de control. Este libro examina los múltiples temas de procedimiento, derecho y políticas sustantivas que surgen a raíz de esta tendencia.

Guía del IGF para los Gobiernos: Políticas de contenido local

La guía está enfocada en las políticas de contenido local del sector minero —una serie de políticas destinadas a potenciar la inversión minera para, por ejemplo, incrementar el empleo local, fomentar las compras locales de las empresas mineras y promover emprendimientos en los sectores no mineros.

La OMC y el Derecho Internacional de las Inversiones: Sistemas convergentes

El derecho internacional históricamente ha regulado el comercio exterior y la inversión extranjera de forma diferente, lo cual ha llevado a una variación en la forma de los tratados, la cultura institucional y la solución de controversias. Sin embargo, los factores económicos, jurídicos y sociológicos ahora están uniendo ambos sistemas.

Legalización, Diplomacia y Desarrollo: ¿Los tratados de inversión despolitizan las controversias de inversión?

Los arquitectos del régimen de tratados de inversión, así como muchos defensores actuales, han sugerido que los tratados de inversión también permiten que los países en desarrollo despoliticen las controversias entre inversionistas y estados, resguardando a las controversias comerciales de consideraciones políticas y diplomáticas más amplias con los países desarrollados.

Arbitrando la Conducta de los Inversores Internacionales

Este libro sirve como una guía comprehensiva para aquellos que desean reformar el derecho internacional de las inversiones desde adentro, en busca de regresar a la reciprocidad en el acceso que se encuentra en la esencia del arbitraje.

El Arbitraje entre Inversionista y Estado y los Derechos Humanos

Este libro examina la interrelación entre los derechos humanos y el derecho internacional de las inversiones y discute si y cómo los argumentos de defensa de los derechos humanos pueden ser presentados en el transcurso de procedimientos arbitrales basados en tratados de inversión.

El Uso de la Economía en el Comercio Internacional y las Controversias de Inversión

Este volumen explora las reflexiones en el campo del derecho mercantil, el arbitraje de inversión, la legislación que rige la competencia y el arbitraje comercial sobre el uso de la economía en las controversias, brindando una descripción general de los conocimientos y prácticas existentes en torno al uso de la economía en el derecho económico internacional.
