Shifting Paradigms in International Investment Law

The conclusion returns to the core questions of the book—whether or not international investment law is embarking upon a shift of paradigms and hence becoming more balanced, less isolated, and increasingly diversified. While the contribution concedes that international investment law is now indeed occupied with a more balanced reconciliation of private and public interests and has witnessed an increase of alternative regulatory approaches concerning the protection of foreign investments, expectations concerning any prospects of a rapid incorporation of investment law into general public international law may rightly remain muted at this point. Overall, the field is in a tense state of flux, with important questions in need of apt resolution; some more controversial—reforming the system of investor–State Dispute settlement, for one—than others (protecting the State’s ability to regulate, for instance).
