Arnaud de Nanteuil


This chapter describes the international rules of investment law. It thus explores all the classic sources of international law, namely treaties, customary law, general principles of law and case-law. As regards the latter, the legal status of precedents in international investment law is still disputed today but this chapter argues that an equilibrium has been found in practice. Some other sources which are less frequently addressed in international law (unilateral acts and academic writings) are also described and the specificity of their role in investment law is highlighted.
