Abstract

This article examines the many failures of the global community to create an international investment agreement. I argue that the failure to delineate the responsibilities of global corporations has created a governance gap, which companies fill by adopting CSR strategies.

Keywords: international investment agreements, OECD, trade, bilateral investment treaties (BITs) CSR, corporate social responsibility
