Abstract

I. INTRODUCTION In 1'art I of this article, I discussed the promotion, the admission and the treatment of Swiss exports and outbound investments. In the present part, which represents the second half of this study of the legal framework of Swiss international trade and investments, I address the legal remedies available to Swiss exporters and investors for protecting their interests whenever trade is hampered or their investment harmed in the importing or host country. Remedies are discussed following the time sequence in which they are generally used; thus, preventive remedies in the form of guarantee (Section II) precede curative remedies. Among the latter, I tentatively distinguished those following a formal, codified, or semi-formal procedure and being of a judicial or quasi-judicial nature (Section ill) from those of a diplomatic one (Section iv). A general conclusion bears on the two Parts of this study (Section v). The "protection" to which the title of this Part refers deserves further qualification. In fact, in Part I of this article on the "promotion" of Swiss international trade and investments, I already addressed the protection of investments as a principle from the perspective of the guarantee of fair and equitable treatment and its
