Abstract

This chapter explores the rationale behind the development of bilateral trade and investment agreements as measures of state action. In examining the arguments in support of such bilateral agreements, it scrutinizes the virtues and deficiencies associated with each. It concludes by considering whether bilateralism contributes to the development of principles and standards governing multilateral trade and investment.

Keywords: bilateral trade and investment agreements, state action, bilateralism, multilateral trade
