Foreign Direct Investment in Less Developed Countries : The Role of ICSID and MIGA
James C. BakerISBN: 1567203124;
The International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) and the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA) are two of the more significant international agencies whose objective is to promote foreign direct investment in less developed countries (LDCs). This is the first detailed treatment of their establishment, the history of their operations, and an evaluation of these operations. Drawing on cases, Baker shows how the functions of these two agencies have encouraged a significant amount of foreign investment in LDCs and how the operations of these two agencies continue to grow in importance. Scholars, professionals, and policy makers will find this to be the most comprehensive description available of these important agencies.
