This volume weaves its way through a number of intersecting fields:chief among them public international law, international investment law, and international trade law. The focus of the analysis is on international investment law, and in particular the significance of the principle of good faith in identifying a protected investment or protected investor, the nationality of a given entity, the jurisdiction of an investment tribunal in resolving a given dispute, and compliance with the fair and equitable treatment standard. Yet the role of good faith in the context of international investment law can be fully understood only having regard to other legal issues, including:the sources of international law; the interpretation of treaties; the law of treaties, in terms of their creation, modification and termination; and the relation-ship between overlapping disputes in different national, regional and inter-national fora. Accordingly, the volume brings together authors with varied and complementary expertise to tackle good faith from these various angles.
