Abstract

This symposium focuses on the fact that investors enjoy a suite of rights and privileges without corresponding responsibilities in international investment law. Is there a more promising future on the horizon for lawyers and advocates dissatisfied with the perceived imbalance between the rights conferred and the duties assigned to transnational corporations in today’s interconnected world? This symposium looks at the possibilities and limits that currently exist under the investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS) regime in its controversial yet changing context.

Keywords: rights and privileges, transnational corporations, investment treaties
