The Oxford Handbook series is a major new initiative in academic publishing. Each volume offers an authoritative and state-of-the-art survey of current thinking and research in a particular subject area. Specially commissioned essays from leading international figures in the discipline give critical examinations of the progress and direction of debates. Oxford Handbooks provide scholars and graduate students with compelling new perspectives upon a wide range of subjects in the humanities and social sciences.

The Oxford Handbook of International Investment Law aims to provide the first truly exhaustive account of the current state and future development of this important and topical field of international law.

The Handbook is divided into three main parts. Part One deals with fundamental conceptual issues, Part Two deals with the main substantive areas of law, and Part Three deals with the major procedural issues arising out of the settlement of international investment disputes.

The book has a policy-oriented introduction, setting the more technical chapters that follow in their policy environment within which contemporary norms for international foreign investment law are evolving. The Handbook concludes with a chapter written by the editors to highlight the major conclusions of the collection, to identify trends in the existing law, and to look forward to the future development of this field.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Although part of the Oxford Handbooks in Law series, this title is a stand-alone treatise in which a broad overview and technical discussions around the fundamental, substantive, and procedural issues are balanced."
-David Rogers, Public Services Librarian, Sidley Austin, Chicago

"The overall subject is covered in a way that defies competition. It is thus a 'must' for business and law libraries. But there is more! One might also use this book to teach an entire International Law course, premised upon a business-oriented approach. It would certainly be a valuable adjunct to the many legal courses touched by its grand design"
American Society of International Law

"The Oxford Handbook of International Investment Law forms an excellent resource for academics and practitioners as well as for advanced students of international law." Freya Batens, Gonville and Caius College, University of Cambridge, Max Planck Institute for Comparative PublicLaw and International Law
