Sustainable Markets Investment Briefings: The regulatory taking doctrine

Lorenzo Cotula

IIED Briefing, 2 pages

This is the third of a series of briefings which discuss the sustainable development issues raised by legal arrangements for the protection of foreign investment. The briefings are based on legal research by IIED and its partners.2 The goal is to provide accessible but accurate information for human rights, development and environmental organisations working on issues raised by foreign investment in low- and middle-income countries. Briefing 3 introduces one of the most controversial legal doctrines of investment law – ”regulatory taking” – and sets out its implications for sustainable development.
