Civil society encompasses all forms and manners of nongovernmental organizations and actors, including business groups, professional organizations, religious organizations, social activist organizations, labor associations, environmental nongovernmental organizations, and many more. This chapter considers nonbusiness actors whose focus is on social and developmental justice. This includes, primarily, those groups whose origins lie in environmental, social justice and equity, human rights, and development causes. It is argued that the notion of a single civil society viewpoint of the reform of international investment law is unrealistic.

Keywords:   civil society, nongovernment organizations, nonbusiness groups, international investment law regime
