This chapter examines the implications of ongoing investment disputes for plain packaging of tobacco products. Written before the Philip Morris (Asia) claim was in the public domain, the chapter examines Philip Morris v. Uruguay. That dispute is examined with a view to identifying its implications not only for Philip Morris (Asia) v. Australia, but also for plain packaging more generally.
