A number of options of how the regime can be improved are laid out in this booklet, including engaging in fact finding processes; establishing consensus-building working groups; formulating a model international investment agreement; building specific mechanisms to improve the investment regime. and commencing intergovernmental processes. An international investment consensus-building process is advocated to facilitate the improvement of the international investment regime.
