'In this new edition, Dr. Schefer has pulled off the seemingly impossible: an up-to-date, accessible yet scholarly introduction to international investment law that students and practitioners alike will find useful and informative. My students particularly appreciate the way she organizes the sometimes chaotic world of arbitral decisions into coherent, if competing, lines of doctrine and policy. As a researcher, this volume is my starting point when investigating a new aspect of investment law. She asks all the right questions and lays a solid foundation for future work. A tour de force.'

‘This new edition of Krista Nadakavukaren Schefer’s International Investment Law provides a wealth of information for the newcomer to the field. It is refreshingly illustrated not only by case excerpts and other materials, but also by short interviews with new voices in international investment law. Overall, it provides a balanced view on one of the most controversial subfields of international economic law.’
