Open Source Textbook on International Investment Law Taking Shape

Int'l Investment Law and Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) often pits investors from developed nations against host states in the developing world. Unfortunately, in these legal battles, the developing nations are often at a disadvantage since expertise and access to information are concentrated in the wealthy developed world. To help universities around the world create courses on international investment law and, in particular, to help with the development of expertise and access to information in developing countries, the CILP's Investment Law Group is working on a textbook for open access = free distribution online. The majority of chapters have been completed and editing and formatting are ongoing. 15 chapters are now available in advanced draft format and more will be added in the coming days and weeks. Check it out here, spread the word, and get in touch if you have questions or want to join us!
