Ecuador and international investment law and policy: between constitutional sovereignty and state responsibility

The little relevance of a developing country such as Ecuador in the geopolitical arena contrasts with its high exposure to investment disputes and its unprecedented proposals to react to the foreign investment protection regime. This study ‘Ecuador and International Investment Law and Policy: Between Constitutional Sovereignty and State Responsibility’ undertakes a thorough legal analysis of the Ecuadorian experience - including articulation, enforcement, resistance, abolishment and reconstruction of predominant tools for investment protection.
