The IIA navigator will be constantly adapted following the review and comments of UN Member States. It is mainly based on information provided by governments on a voluntary basis. A contract is included in a country`s IIA census as soon as it is formally concluded; Contracts whose negotiations have been concluded but not signed are not accounted for. A contract is excluded from the IIA`s census as soon as its termination takes effect, as soon as it continues to have a legal effect on certain investments during its survival period (“sunset”). In case of renewal of a contract, only one of the contracts between the same parties is counted. Depending on the situation, the counted treaty may be the old one if it remains in force until the ratification of the newly concluded IIA. International investment regimes operate at the bilateral, regional, interregional and multilateral levels. Policymakers, negotiators, civil society and other stakeholders need to be well informed about foreign direct investment, international investment agreements (IIAs) and their impact on sustainable development. Main objectives of UNCTAD`s IIA work programme • Reform of the international investment agreement (IIA) regime to improve its sustainable development dimension; • Comprehensive analysis of key issues arising from the complexity of the international investment regime • Development of a wide range of instruments to support the formulation of a more balanced international investment policy. IiA Navigator This database of IAs – the IIA browser – is managed by UNCTAD`s IIA Section. You can browse the IIAs concluded by a particular country or group of countries, view the recently concluded ais or use the extended contract search for demanding research tailored to your needs. Please cite UNCTAD, International Investment Agreements Navigator, available on investmentpolicy.unctad.org/international-investment-agreements/ IIA Mapping Project The IIA Mapping Project is a cooperative initiative between UNCTAD and universities around the world to map the content of IIAs. The resulting database serves as a tool to understand trends in the development of the IIA, assess the prevalence of different policy approaches and identify examples of contracts.
The “Mapping of IIA Content” allows you to browse the results of the previous project (the page is updated regularly when the new results have entered into place). . . .
