Two key developments are contributing to the harmonization of the international investment law regime. First, a set of major agreements (TTIP, TPP, RCEP, US-China BIT, EU-China BIT) is being negotiated by many of the world's largest economies, which, if completed, will cover a very significant share of global investment. Second, given the recent treaty practice of the States participating in those negotiations, that set of major agreements likely would reflect an emerging consensus on many key 21st century investment law issues.
