Abstract

The purpose of this article is to appraise certain fundamental aspects of international economic development agreements (EDAs)1 in the light of recent developments and their relevance to public international law. They merit consideration afresh as they are very often confronted in international arbitrations which involve a State, a State enterprise or both and which raise various issues. A public international lawyer cannot afford to ignore the importance of understanding them in the real world while dealing with the arbitration of international disputes arising out of EDAs.

Keywords: Economic Development Agreements (EDAs), Public International Law, State Contracts, Arbitration
