Abstract

Investment liberalization provisions are an important feature of recent investment treaty practice and a central concern for policy-makers and treaty negotiators. However, they have received little academic attention to date. This paper provides an overview of existing theory and evidence as it relates to investment treaties' liberalization provisions, and defines questions for further research in the field.
