Abstract

The ongoing increase in investment treaties raises more questions regarding compliance with their provisions. This chapter discusses the major international relations approaches to this important question (the realist approach, the liberal perspective, and the constructivist approach). Each theoretical perspective presents a different conception of international investment law, and a different set of factors for analysing the prospects of compliance with or violation of international investment treaties.
