Investissement direct étranger

Introduction

Foreign Direct Investment - Research Guide International Law

L'investissement direct étranger  (IDE) est une catégorie d'investissements qui reflète l'intention d'une entreprise résidente dans un pays d'établir des relations durables avec une économie autre que la sienne. Ces intérêts durables nécessitent l'existence d'une relation à long terme entre l'investisseur direct et l'entreprise qui bénéficie de l'investissement direct, et un certain niveau d'influence sur la gestion de l'entreprise.  La propriété directe ou indirecte de 10% ou plus des droits de vote d'une entreprise résidente dans une économie par un investisseur résident d'une autre économie est la preuve de l'existence d'une telle relation. Le Centre international de règlement des différends internationaux est une institution internationale indépendante créée en application de la  Convention pour le règlement des différends relatifs aux investissements entre États et ressortissants d'autres États. Le principal objectif du CIRDI est de fournir des services de conciliation et d'arbitrage pour les différends relatifs aux investissements internationaux. La Convention CIRDI est un traité multilatéral rédigé par les directeurs exécutifs de la Banque internationale pour la reconstruction et le développement (la Banque mondiale). Il a été ouvert à la signature le 18 mars 1965 et est entré en vigueur le 14 octobre 1966. Aujourd'hui, le CIRDI est considéré comme le principal organisme d'arbitrage destiné au règlement des différends entre États et investisseurs.

  • Collins, D., An Introduction to International Investment Law, Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2017.

    Collins, D., An Introduction to International Investment Law, Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2017.

    This insightful and accessible introduction provides students and practitioners with a comprehensive overview of the increasingly important discipline of international investment law. Focusing primarily on the legal principles contained in the growing body of international investment agreements, this book covers the core concepts of the discipline with attention given to their relation to each other and to the manner in which they have been developed through arbitration case law. The context of each legal principle is explored along with a consideration of some of the major debates and emerging criticisms. Avoiding extensive case extracts, this book adopts an engaging and succinct narrative style which allows readers to advance their understanding of the topic while examining the legal principles with academic rigour and discerning commentary.

    The International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) is the premier international investment arbitration facility in the world. This volume celebrates the first 50 years of ICSID by presenting the landmark cases that have been decided under its auspices. These cases have addressed every aspect of investment disputes: jurisdictional thresholds; the substantive obligations found in investment treaties, contracts, and legislation; questions of general international law; and a number of novel procedural issues. Each chapter, written by a knowledgeable expert on the chapter’s particular focus, looks at an international investment law topic through the lens of one or more of these leading cases, analysing what the case held, how it has been applied, and its overall significance to the development of international investment law.

  • Dumberry,P., The Formation and Identification of Rules of Customary International Law in International Investment Law, Cambridge, United Kingdom, Cambridge University Press, 2016.

    9781107138520

    Rules of customary international law provide basic legal protections to foreign investors doing business abroad. These rules remain of fundamental importance today despite the growing number of investment treaties containing substantive investment protection. In this book, Patrick Dumberry provides a comprehensive analysis of the phenomenon of custom in the field of international investment law. He analyses two fundamental questions: how customary rules are created in this field and how they can be identified. The book examines the types of manifestation of State practice which should be considered as relevant evidence for the formation of customary rules, and to what extent they are different from those existing under general international law. The book also analyses the concept of States' opinio juris in investment arbitration. Offering guidance to actors called upon to apply customary rules in concrete cases, this book will be of significant importance to those involved in investment arbitration.

  • Lim, C.L. (ed.), Alternative Visions of the International Law on Foreign Investment : Essays in Honour of Muthucumaraswamy Sornarajah, Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2016.

    Lim, C.L. (ed.), Alternative Visions of the International Law on Foreign Investment : Essays in Honour of Muthucumaraswamy Sornarajah, Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2016.

    This book is about the forces that are reshaping the international law on foreign investment today. It begins by explaining the liberal origins of contemporary investment treaties before addressing a current backlash against these treaties and the device of investment arbitration. The book describes a long-standing legal-intellectual resistance to a neo-liberal global economic agenda, and how tribunals have interpreted various treaty standards instead. It introduces our reader to the changes now taking place in the design of a range of familiar treaty clauses, and it describes how some of these changes are now driven not only by developing and emerging economies but also by the capital-exporting nations. Finally, it explores the life, career and writings of Muthucumaraswamy Sornarajah, a scholar whose work has been dedicated to the realisation of many of these changes, and his views about the hold global capital has over legal practice.

    Hindelang, S. and Krajewski, M.(eds.), Shifting Paradigms in International Investment Law : More Balanced, Less Isolated, Increasingly Diversified, Oxford, Oxford University Press, 2016

    International investment law is in transition. Whereas the prevailing mindset has always been the protection of the economic interests of individual investors, new developments in international investment law have brought about a paradigm shift. There is now more than ever before an interest in a more inclusive, transparent, and public regime. Shifting Paradigms in International Investment Law addresses these changes against the background of the UNCTAD framework to reform investment treaties. The book analyses how the investment treaty regime has changed and how it ought to be changing to reconcile private property interests and the state's duty to regulate in the public interest. In doing so, the volume tracks attempts in international investment law to recalibrate itself towards a more balanced, less isolated, and increasingly diversified regime. The individual chapters of this edited volume address the contents of investment agreements, the system of dispute settlement, the interrelation of investment agreements with other areas of public international law, constitutional questions, and new regional perspectives from Europe, South Africa, the Pacific Rim Region, and Latin America.

  • Llamzon, A.P., Corruption in International Investment Arbitration, Oxford, Oxford University Press, 2014.

    Llamzon, A.P., Corruption in International Investment Arbitration, Oxford, Oxford University Press, 2014.

    This is the first comprehensive study of corruption in international investment arbitration. The book considers the limited effectiveness of efforts to combat transnational corruption in international law and the emergence of international investment arbitration as a singular means for effective control of corruption within the international legal order. The case law on corruption by investment tribunals is studied exhaustively, jurisprudential trends are identified, and reforms aimed at enhancing the effectiveness and fairness of investment arbitration as a mechanism to combat corruption are proposed. Divided into three parts, part I focus on the phenomenon of corruption in foreign investment and attempts at its control through international law. Part II analyses the available case law in international investment arbitration dealing with corruption. Llamzon identifies nine distinct trends emerging from the case law and provides a table summarizing the key areas of corruption decision-making and each relevant tribunal's approach, which is an invaluable tool for practitioners engaging in 'live' issues of corruption within arbitral proceedings. Part III reflects on the implications of these trends for both the 'supply' and 'demand' sides of corruption in international law, and proposes a integrative framework of decision for corruption issues in international investment arbitration.

  • Giorgetti, Ch. (ed.), Litigation International Investment Disputes : a Practitioner's Guide, Leiden, Boston, Brill Nijhoff, 2014.

    Giorgetti, Ch. (ed.), Litigation International Investment Disputes : a Practitioner's Guide, Leiden, Boston, Brill Nijhoff, 2014.

    Each year a growing number of complex and distinctive cases are filed in diverse forums which specialize in international investment arbitration. Until now, however, no single manual has guided practitioners through the many complexities involved in international investment arbitration proceedings - from whether and how to initiate arbitral proceedings to the enforcement of the award and available post-award remedies. Litigating International Investment Disputes: A Practitioner’s Guide fills this lacuna by serving as a comprehensive resource for those who are new to international investment arbitration, as well as for the seasoned practitioners.

    The diverse group of contributors are highly experienced experts and practitioners, who have acted as counsel and arbitrators, and served in institutions which routinely administer international investment arbitration proceedings.

  • Bonnitcha, J., Substantive Protection under Investment Treaties : a Legal and Economic Analysis, Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2014.

    Bonnitcha, J., Substantive Protection under Investment Treaties : a Legal and Economic Analysis, Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2014.

    Substantive Protection under Investment Treaties provides the first systematic analysis of the consequences of the substantive protections that investment treaties provide to foreign investors. It proposes a new framework for identifying and evaluating the costs and benefits of differing levels of investment treaty protection, and uses this framework to evaluate the levels of protection for foreign investors implied by different interpretations of the fair and equitable treatment and indirect expropriation provisions of investment treaties. The author examines the arguments and assumptions of both supporters and critics of investment treaties, seeks to test whether they are coherent and borne out by evidence, and concludes that the 'economic' justifications for investment treaty protections are much weaker than is generally assumed. As such, the 'economic' objectives of investment treaties are not necessarily in tension with other 'non-economic' objectives. These findings have important implications for the drafting and interpretation of investment treaties.

    Douglas, Z., J. Pauwelyn and J.E. Viñuales (eds.), Foundations of International Investment Law: Bringing Theory into Practice, Oxford, Oxford University Press, 2014.

    International investment law is one of the fastest growing areas of international law. It has led to the signing of thousands of agreements, mostly in the form of investment contracts and bilateral investment treaties. Also, in the last two decades, there has been an exponential growth in the number of disputes being resolved by investment arbitration tribunals. Yet the legal principles at the basis of international investment law and arbitration remain in a state of flux. Perhaps the best illustration of this phenomenon is the wide disagreement among investment tribunals on some of the core concepts underpinning the regime, such as investment, property, regulatory powers, scope of jurisdiction, applicable law, or the interactions with other areas of international law. The purpose of this book is to revisit these conceptual foundations in order to shed light on the practice of international investment law. It is an attempt to bridge the growing gap between the theory and the practice of this thriving area of international law.

  • Treves, T., F. Seatzu and S. Trevisanut (eds.) Foreign Investment, International Law and Common Concerns, London, Routledge, 2014.

    Treves, T., F. Seatzu and S. Trevisanut (eds.) Foreign Investment, International Law and Common Concerns, London, Routledge, 2014.

    This book explores from an international law perspective the complex relationship between foreign investments and common concerns, i.e. values that do not coincide, or do not necessarily coincide, with the interests of the investor and of the host state. It pays particular attention to the role of the main international development banks in reconciling the needs of foreign investors with the protection of common concerns, such as the environment, human rights and labour rights. Among its collection of essays, the volume asks how much "regulatory space" investment law leaves; whether international investment law is an effective means of balancing contrasting interests, and whether investment arbitration currently constitutes a mechanism of global governance.
    In collecting the outlooks of various experts in human rights, environmental and international economic law, this book breaks new ground in exploring how attention to its legal aspects may help in navigating the relationship between foreign investment and common concerns. In doing so, the book provides valuable insights into the substantive issues and institutional aspects of international investment law.

  • Miles, K., The Origins of International Investment Law, Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2013.

    Miles, K., The Origins of International Investment Law, Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2013.

    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.
