Sustainable Development in EU Foreign Investment Law, Stefanie Schacherer offers an account of the legal effects of sustainable development within the EU’s international investment policy and global investment governance. The author provides a clear and convincing assessment of how the EU contributes to the ongoing debate on sustainable development integration in international investment agreements. By analysing the EU’s post-Lisbon treaty practice, the author critically assesses to what extent the EU managed to operationalise a sustainable-development-driven foreign investment policy. The book is remarkable for its depth of knowledge and understanding of international investment law and EU external relations law adding knowledge in both fields in a distinctive manner. It is a fresh look at recurrent challenges of international economic law.
