Will State Emergency Measures Trigger International Investment Disputes?


  • Anne Van Aaken

    () (University of St. Gallen in Switzerland)

  • Jurgen Kurtz


The emergency measures for international investment passed to date can generally be grouped into three broad categories: measures designed to bolster the stability of the financial services industry, measures directed at the financial services industry but structured to increase the availability of credit to other sectors of the economy, and general fiscal measures designed to boost public spending and targeting select and strategic industries (including the automotive industry). This paper focuses on the first and second categories, as these are presently regarded as the most likely to engage international investment law.
