Chapter 12: INTERACTIONS (1): INVESTMENT LAW, HUMAN RIGHTS AND ENVIRONMENTAL LAW
This chapter explores the relationship between, on the one hand, international investment law and, on the other hand, international human rights and environmental law. It argues that the importance of non-economic considerations in investment law is growing and that social and environmental issues can no longer be ignored in investment operations. This evolution is explored both through treaty-making and case-law. The chapter thus tries to identify what the future of investment law may be in consideration of the general objective of sustainable development.
