Corruption — Investment — Investor — UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules — BITs (Bilateral Investment Treaties)

This introductory chapter sets out the book's two main purposes: first, to study the phenomenon of corruption in international investment, the growing movement under international law to prevent and criminalize such behaviour, and its relationship with international investment law and arbitration; and second, to develop a working framework for investment arbitration decision-making when issues of corruption arise. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.
