Abstract:     
As China's economy grows and government controls liberalize, Chinese investors are realizing the value and opportunities associated with investment in post-conflict regions. Given this trend, and the volatility associated with the political and economic environments in post-conflict regions, this article illustrates several mechanisms - bilateral investment treaties, domestic laws regulating foreign direct investment, tax treaties and tax incentive zones, and international investment organizations - Chinese investors may wish to employ when investing in post-conflict states. Such mechanisms serve to incentivize foreign direct investment by providing lower market entry and operating costs and protecting investments with transparent and robust controls. While none on their own guarantees protection, together, they provide a substantial safety net should the investment environment deteriorate.
