Protection et promotion des investissements
Le domaine des investissements internationaux demeure l'un des plus incertains, et des plus controversés, du droit international économique. Cet ouvrage analyse le droit contemporain sur la base des traités qui sont apparus sur la scène internationale depuis la décolonisation. Quelques 200 conventions de ce genre sont aujourd'hui en vigueur. L'auteur montre l'émergence de nouveaux principes, de protection et de coopération, s'appliquant aux investissements internationaux. Il retrace l'évolution qui a eu lieu, depuis le droit coutumier de la protection des étrangers, jusqu'aux règles des traités contemporains, qui visent souvent à surmonter les problèmes rencontrés dans le passé. Toutefois, à côté de leur fonction évolutive, les traités actuels ont aussi pour objet de consacrer d'anciens principes coutumiers, que les débats sur le nouvel ordre économique international avaient pu estomper. L'ouvrage approfondit les principales questions posées par les relations internationales d'investissement. D'importants développements sont consacrés à des problèmes peu étudiés jusqu'à présent, parce que d'origine récente, tels que les aspects financiers des investissements internationaux. De par la richesse de sa documentation, ce livre constitue un instrument de travail pour tous ceux, avocats, diplomates ou universitaires, qui sont confrontés aux règles du droit international des investissements.

The Origins of International Investment Law
International investment law is a complex and dynamic field. Yet, the implications of its history are under explored. Kate Miles examines the historical evolution of international investment law, assessing its origins in the commercial and political expansionism of dominant states during the seventeenth to early twentieth centuries and the continued resonance of those origins within modern foreign investment protection law. In particular, the exploration of the activities of the Dutch East India Company, Grotius' treatises, and pre-World War II international investment disputes provides insight into current controversies surrounding the interplay of public and private interests, the systemic design of investor-state arbitration, the substantive focus of principles, and the treatment of environmental issues within international investment law. In adopting such an approach, this book provides a fresh conceptual framework through which contemporary issues can be examined and creates new understandings of those controversies.
Treaty Shopping in International Investment Law
Treaty shopping, also known under the terms of nationality planning, corporate (re-)structuring or corporate maneuvering, implies a strategic change of nationality or strategic invocation of another nationality with the aim of accessing another (usually more favourable) investment treaty for purposes of investment arbitration. When deciding on whether an investment claim based on treaty shopping should be upheld or dismissed, investment arbitral tribunals have been increasingly faced with significant questions, such as: What is treaty shopping and how may legitimate nationality planning be distinguished from treaty abuse in international investment law? Should a claimant that is controlled by a host-State national be considered a protected investor, or should tribunals pierce its corporate veil? Does an investor have to make the investment in good faith, and does it have to make a contribution of its own to the investment it is claiming protection for? When does a corporate restructuring constitute an abuse of process, and which is the role of the notion of dispute in this respect? How efficient are denial of benefits clauses to counter treaty shopping? Treaty Shopping in International Investment Law examines in a systematic manner the practice of treaty shopping in international investment law and arbitral decisions that have undertaken to draw this line. While some legal approaches taken by arbitral tribunals have started to consolidate, others remain unsettled, painting a picture of an overall inconsistent jurisprudence. This is hardly surprising, given the thousands of international investment agreements that provide for the investor ́s right to sue the host State on grounds of alleged breaches of investment obligations. This book analyses and discusses the different ways by which arbitral tribunals have dealt with the value judgment at the core of the distinction between objectionable and unobjectionable treaty shopping, and makes proposals de lege ferenda on how States could reform their international investment agreements (in particular with respect to treaty drafting) in order to make them less susceptible to the practice of treaty shopping.
