EU Foreign Investment Law

Angelos Dimopoulos

Oxford University Press

Chapter 5 analyzes the international law effects of EU external action in the field of foreign investment. It addresses the legal ramifications resulting from the nature of EU International Investment Agreements as instruments of international law. In that respect, Chapter 5 explores firstly the question of the EU's and Member States' international responsibility for the performance of the investment obligations undertaken in EU IIAs, taking into account in particular, the nature of EU IIAs as mixed agreements and the international law rules on the responsibility of international organizations. The second part of Chapter 5 deals with the hierarchy of norms between overlapping IIAs from an international law perspective, examining both overlaps between EU IIAs and between EU IIAs and Member States BITs.

Keywords:   EU international responsibility, mixed agreements, draft articles on international responsibility of international organizations, attribution of conduct, overlaps, hierarchy of norms
