Abstract:     
International investment law has become one of the fastest evolving as well as one of the most contentious issues in international economic law. But whereas much discussion on fragmentation in international economic law until now has focused on the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the relationship between the WTO Agreements and other issue areas of international law, such as multilateral environmental agreements or international human rights law, investment and - issues have been comparatively neglected, though they have become an ever more important problem. This article connects the fragmentation debate in international law with international investment law and jurisprudence with a view to substantive conflicts and possibilities of harmonious interpretation as well as institutional problems.
