Abstract

Debates about the reform of international investment law and investor-state arbitration are omnipresent. They are also at the center of interest of this Special Issue of jwit, which is guest-edited by Andreas Ziegler and emblematically entitled “Towards Better bit s? – Making International Investment Law Responsive to Sustainable Development Objectives.” It contains contributions by Anne-Juliette Bonzon, Anne van Aaken, Laurence Boisson de Chazournes and Brian McGarry, Faraz Rojid and Maria del Carmen Vasquez, Krista Nadakavukaren Schefer, and Tarcisio Gazzini. In addition, this issue contains an article by Jonathan Bonnitcha on “Investment Treaties and Transition from Authoritarian Rule,” which equally addresses aspects that are relevant for the debate on investment law reform, namely how investment law can complicate or facilitate transition to democratic rule. The Need for a Debate About the Normative Foundations of Investment Law Reform Reform debates are often reactions to interpretations of arbitral tribunals and take shape in negotiations and renegotiations of international investment agreements. The ongoing discussions on the conclusion of so-called mega-regionals, such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (tpp) or the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (ttip), are most salient in this context.
