The Nijhoff International Investment Law Series presents important, high-quality and original research in the field of international investment law. Although formally a part of international law generally, international investment law has become an independent field of research, crossing the boundaries between public international law, international commercial law, and domestic public law. The Series therefore covers international investment law in a relatively broad sense, including research on the substantive aspects of international investment law and the dispute settlement aspects, i.e., international investment arbitration.

The Series also covers research on interactions between international investment law and other areas of international law and domestic law, both private and public, including international economic and trade law, general public international law, international commercial law and arbitration, international environmental law, human rights, or domestic constitutional and administrative law. It is open to doctrinal analysis as well as theoretical, conceptual, and interdisciplinary approaches to international investment law, including law and economics analysis, empirical analysis, historical analysis, political science analysis, or normative analysis.

The Series will consider Works in, although not limited to, the following areas:

• Standards of treatment
• International investment arbitration
• Regionalism in international investment law
• Interaction between international investment law and domestic law
• Private law approaches to international investment law and arbitration
• Public law approaches to international investment law and arbitration
• Compensation and reparation in international investment law
• Responsibility and accountability of multinational corporations in international investment law
• International investment law and sustainable development
• Industry-specific or country-specific studies
• Doctrinal, conceptual, and interdisciplinary approaches

American Classics in International Law: International Investment Law, edited by Professor José E. Alvarez, contains a selection of the best scholarship on the subject produced by those with a connection to the United States. Since international investment law remains a subject that is not codified in a single multilateral treaty, the volume also contains selections of U.S. treaties that have influenced the over 3,400 international investment agreements (IIAs) now in existence. The collection offers a selection of significant addresses by prominent U.S. policy-makers along with a comprehensive introduction by the Editor that puts the various elements - the contributions made by U.S. academics, treaty-negotiators, and policy-makers - in a broader context.
