A Model International Investment Agreement for the Promotion of Sustainable Development

By Konrad von Moltke on November 15, 2004
The current model for international investment agreements (including many failed attempts, such as the OECD's MAI) is too narrowly focussed on investor rights. This paper asks what an investment agreement would look like if its goal from the outset were to achieve sustainable development. The result is a novel mix of rights and obligations for investors, host states and home states.
