Fair and Equitable Treatment
This bulletin on Fair and Equitable Treatment (FET) examines the main approaches for defining fair and equitable treatment in international investment agreements (IIAs), and their implications for development policy space. It also identifies best practice approaches in recent IIAs for including FET.

In fact, the FET standard has emerged as "the most relied upon and successful basis for a treaty claim" for investors.
