When companies sue states: Reforming the international investment treaty system by Anthea Roberts

In this fifteen minute speech, Anthea Roberts explores what happens when a company from one country sues the government of another. She looks at the shifting world of international investment treaties and what its future might look like.

This speech was recorded as part of ’21st Century Regulation and Governance Challenges’ on 21 June 2017 at the School of Regulation and Global Governance (RegNet), ANU.

This event celebrated the launch of RegNet’s new book Regulatory Theory: Foundations and Applications. The book, edited by Prof Peter Drahos, is a collection of deep and broad reflections on all things regulation and governance. Authored by RegNet academics past and present, Regulatory Theory establishes the foundations and applications of the RegNet approach to studying regulation and governance, based on principles of social justice, environmental sustainability and human wellbeing.

Regulatory Theory: Foundations and Applications is available for free download or purchase here.

An interactive tool to help you explore the book by particular themes is available here.
