Abstract:     
In this Introduction to the Suffolk Transnational Law Review symposium issue on foreign direct investment and investor-State arbitration, I briefly provide background on the state of investor-State arbitration with reference to the articles in this issue and describe the present Foreign Direct Investment International Moot (“FDI Moot”) competition, which provides a valuable means for students to learn international investment law and useful advocacy skills. The FDI Moot brings together law students from around the world who act as advocates in a hypothetical dispute between an investor and a “host” country. The competition is designed to explore international investment law and aims to capture the unique dynamics of investor-State arbitration. The FDI Moot was established in response to the increasing pace of foreign investments in the global economy, and the surge in related investment disputes.
