Fuad Zarbiyev Publishes Article in Journal of International Economic Law

International law consultant Fuad Zarbiyev has published an article in the Journal of International Economic Law entitled, “’These are my principles. If you don’t like them I have others.’ On justifications of foreign investment protection under international law.” The article aims to show that the mainstream discourse of the international law of foreign investment protection has adjusted itself to changing historical circumstances in a way that brings to light its strategic and ideological character.

The article argues, in particular, that the justifications offered in defense of foreign investment protection under international law appear to have been pretextual rather than principled, having been offered to provide reasons capable of flying at a particular point in time in light of the attending circumstances rather than to serve as an analytically sound, empirically grounded, and diachronically consistent framework.
