In A Multifaceted Approach to Trade Liberalisation and Investment Protection in the Energy Sector, Elena Cima and Makane Moïse Mbengue bring together leading academics and practitioners to discuss the most significant challenges faced by trade liberalization and investment protection in the energy sector. At the same time, they address the environmental and human rights issues that often underlie these challenges, in a skillful attempt to bridge the gap between these different perspectives and ultimately pave the way to a multi-faceted and comprehensive approach to the subject matter.
