International Business Law
Details of the task
?The Fair and Equitable Treatment (FET) standard, contained in numerous international investment treaties, has proven a successful mean of investment protection in investor-state disputes. International tribunals have been keen to expand its meaning, so as to cover a wide range of state behaviours negatively affecting foreign investment. However, the current status and role of FET in International Investment Law is not immune to criticism.?
Does the FET standard strike an appropriate balance between investment protection on the one hand and the ability of states to regulate on key public policy issues on the other?
Critically discuss the quote by referring to the relevant scholarship and jurisprudence of international arbitral tribunals.
