International Investment, Political Risk, And Dispute Resolution
An ideal practitioner's tool, this book clearly examines international law and provides practical steps that can be taken to minimize political risk and to deal with expropriation when it occurs. A systematic format covers relevant international law; defines political risk in general and in its most common forms; discusses available investment treaties and related mechanisms and institutions that might make a given developing country more attractive than another; considers pre-investment decisions that can reduce political risk, from ways to structure transactions to procuring investment insurance; and details the options open to an investor after an investment is affected.
International Investment, Political Risk, and Dispute Resolution provides a practical, sophisticated, and comprehensive discussion of all the relevant issues related to political risk:
A- The political risk of expropriation, both direct and indirect
A- Subtle yet nefarious forms of "indirect" and "creeping" expropriation that can be more difficult to prove, identify, quantify, and protect against
A- Protections available under international law to minimize such political risks
A- The role of bilateral investment treaties, government-sponsored and private investment insurance, and various provisions that may be utilized in investment agreements between the investor and the host state
A- Measures and steps that can be taken to reduce or respond to political risk, including the proper application of international arbitration

Socially Responsible Investment In A Global Environment
`The authors have done an excellent job explaining the development and practice of Socially Responsible Investment (SRI). Under the recent recognition of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in Asia and its strong emphasis by US and European corporations, this book provides important guidance to students and professionals who are interested in the effects and implications of SRI. This book is truly informative and should be on the reading list of all fund managers and CFOs of international corporations which are serious about CSR.'-Louis T.W. Cheng, Hong Kong Polytechnic University
`Individual investors and corporate heads have the responsibility to keep abreast of major changes in the marketplace. Socially responsible investment is one of those changes. Fung, Law and Yau provide, in a single source, a great opportunity to get up to date on an area that will be a force for years to come. I encourage any thoughtful investor or manager to read this book.'-Thomas Schneeweis, University of Massachusetts-Amherst, USA
