Intersection of Human Rights and International Investment Law: Some Brief Observation

George Khatidze

Abstract


The world has witnessed development and expansion of two disti nct areas of internati onal law wherein one deals with protecti on of human rights and the other with protecti on and promoti on of foreign investment. Protection and promotion of foreign investment lies at very heart of numerous Internati onal Investment Agreements (IIAs). On the other hand, series of internati onal treati es have been developed in response to the mandate set forth in the Charter of United Nati ons. The UN is empowered by the UN Charter to promote “higher standards of living, full enjoyment, and conditi ons of economic and social progress and development”, 
as well as “universal respect for, and observance of, human rights and fundamental freedoms for all without disti ncti on as to race, sex, language, or religion”.
