Performance Requirements and Investment Incentives Under International Economic Law

Elgar International Investment Law series

In this discerning book, David Collins provides an eloquent analysis of performance requirements and investment incentives as vital tools of economic policy. Adopting a consciously broad definition of both instruments, this work provokes a constructively critical assessment of their existing treatment under international economic law.

Chapter 5: Investment incentives and international trade law

David Collins

Subjects: law - academic, international investment law, public international law


This chapter will evaluate the WTO’s limited disciplines on incentives, captured essentially by its regime on subsidies under the SCM. The lack of comprehensive coverage by this instrument and other WTO agreements like the GATS and the GPA will be examined, with a focus on the imperfect link between tests for economically distortive subsidies and a range of traditional incentives.
