Routledge research in international economic law
"This book provides an overview of international investment policy and policy-making drawing upon perspectives from law, economics, international business and political science. International investment is a complex phenomenon with significant effects worldwide. Developing effective policies and strategies to attract investment in sufficient quantities and marshal it to contribute to sustainable development is a critical challenge for governments at all levels. The book's interdisciplinary approach provides fresh insights into the mix of policy options available to governments seeking investment to support their country's (or region's) development. As well as identifying ways to effectively design, implement and assess policies to attract foreign investment, it explores how to manage foreign investment's effects. Various dimensions of international investment policy are discussed, including: benefits and costs (economic, environmental, social and political) of foreign investment, the significance of global value chains, state-owned enterprises and sovereign wealth funds, and the role of tax policy, investment promotion and policy advocacy, location branding, investment treaties, and national security considerations. Through its contributions to a new inter-disciplinary understanding of international investment policy-making, this book will benefit students and scholars working in areas such as international business, international economic law, international economics, development economics, international development and international political economy as well as being a valuable resource for policy-makers"-- Provided by publisher.
