Research Handbook on Human Rights and Investment

Research Handbooks in International Law series

Edited by Yannick Radi, Professor of International Law, University of Louvain (UCLouvain), Belgium

The interplay between human rights and investments is a key and complex issue in today’s world. To take stock of this importance and to tackle this complexity, this Research Handbook offers a unique multi-faceted approach. It gathers in-depth contributions which focus on the interplay between human rights and investments in various international legal regimes, economic sectors and regions. It also provides thorough analyses of the various types of accountability that may result from the activities of multinational corporations in relation to human rights. This Research Handbook is intended for practitioners, policy-makers, academics and students eager to understand the interaction between human rights and investments in all its dimensions.​

‘The Research Handbook on Human Rights and Investment provides a comprehensive and timely analysis of the various dimensions of the interplay between investment and human rights. These many dimensions, including the effect of foreign investment on a local population's human rights and international corporate responsibility for human rights violations, raise complex policy and legal questions. The Research Handbook is a welcome and important contribution to research on the controversial interplay between investment and human rights​.’
– Andrew Newcombe, University of Victoria, Canada
