The Utility Of Bilateral Investment Treaties In The Formulation Of Customary International Law, Bernard Kishoiyian Jan 1993

The Utility Of Bilateral Investment Treaties In The Formulation Of Customary International Law, Bernard Kishoiyian

Northwestern Journal of International Law & Business

In this paper, I propose to investigate the utility of BITs in the formulation of customary international law in the area of state responsibility for the protection of alien property. It is my thesis that the frenetic conclusion of BITs is occasioned by the uncertainty that pervades international investment law since the advent of the developing countries on the international scene, and secondly, that international law has not kept pace with the developments that have taken place in the last thirty years in foreign direct investment. To the extend that this is so, I contend that each BIT is nothing …

Public Law, Private Actors: The Impact Of Human Rights On Business Investors In China Symposium: Doing Business In China, Diane F. Orentlicher, Timothy A. Gelatt

Northwestern Journal of International Law & Business

Should companies invest at all in countries, like China, where severe human rights abuses are pervasive? If they do invest, should they restrict their operations to areas of the country that have a comparatively good human rights record? Are there basic principles that transnational companies should observe to ensure, at a minimum, that they do not become complicit in a host government's abrogation of universally-recognized human rights? Should such principles be enforced by Executive or congressional fiat, or should companies take primary responsibility for policing themselves? How can companies that wish to factor human rights considerations into their business decisions …

Pudong: Another Special Economic Zone In China?-An Analysis Of The Special Regulations And Policy For Shanghai's Pudong New Area, Bin Xue Sang

Northwestern Journal of International Law & Business

The Open Door Policy instituted in the late 1970s marked the beginning of economic reform in the People's Republic of China ("China"). Leading these reforms was the establishment of five special economic zones i and the opening of fourteen coastal cities.2 These special economic zones ("SEZs") and coastal cities, located along the east coast of China, serve as "windows" to attract foreign investment and technology.' So far, each of the five SEZs and the fourteen coastal cities has been successful in achieving these goals.


Resolving Commercial Disputes In China: Foreign Firms And The Role Of Contract Law, Roy F. Grow Jan 1993

Resolving Commercial Disputes In China: Foreign Firms And The Role Of Contract Law, Roy F. Grow

Northwestern Journal of International Law & Business

It is not my intention to explicate China's Foreign Economic Contract Law (FECL), the Joint Venture Law (JVL), or the Foreign Enterprise Income Tax Law (FEITL). The analysis of these codes has been done in great detail by others.' Instead, I will examine the actual behavior of the most important actors governed by this set of laws-the Chinese and foreign enterprises that work with one another and which must find ways to resolve their competing claims. In this study, I will examine the tension between Chinese and foreign firms by focusing on several specific and limited questions having to do …
