Ioana Tudor

The fair and equitable treatment standard in the international law of foreign investment. Oxford University Press, 2008

K3830.T83 2008

 

This book analyses not only the conventional and customary framework of the fair and equitable treatment clause but also its scope and all its applications in the existing case law. It tackles the standard of fair and equitable treatment by applying four conceptual frames: the legal basis of fair and equitable treatment, its nature as a standard, its content and finally the implications of its breach.
