Inadequate arbitration on commercial development rights

Other Names:
Lack of dispute resolution mechanisms for foreign investors

Prospective investors are made uncomfortable by the anticipation of disagreement with a host country which, in the event of deadlock, cannot be submitted to a binding determination by a third party expert. The situation becomes most difficult if the dispute is about what standard should be established. In this case, the issue is how much damage to local interests should be permitted for the sake of a profitable development from which the government will derive needed revenues.
