BITs, the (obscure) force at the heart of the global investment regime

Foreign investors have sought compensation for billions of dollars under the protection provisions granted by bilateral investment treaties (BITs) in recent years. If developing countries used to be the almost exclusive target of these investor-state disputes, their peers in the West have also become increasingly exposed to the vague nature of BIT protections, with legal firms even testing the waters to bring claims against the United Kingdom for Brexit and its consequences on foreign investors.

Lauge Poulsen, senior lecturer in International Political Economy at the University College London (UCL) and co-author of the book “The Political Economy of the Investment Treaty Regime”, discusses with podcast host Jacopo Dettoni about the nature of these treaties, their reach and secrecy.

The fDi Podcast: Mexico braces for Nafta renegotiation

The moment of truth for Mexico may be around the corner as official talks over the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (Nafta) are slated to begin in August, or September at the very latest. Mexico built its recent fortunes on the free trade agreement with the US and Canada ratified in 1993, but US president Donald Trump labelled the agreement as the “worst ever trade deal” and has finally followed up on its early promises to renegotiate it by sending official notice to Congress on May 18, thus opening a 90-day window for Congressmen to discuss it all before a table with Mexico and Canada is finally opened. Silvia Pavoni, The Banker’s economics editor, and Jacopo Dettoni, fDi Magazine’s deputy editor, share insights over the upcoming round of talks from their recent interviews with sources in Mexico and the US.
