The final chapter of the contribution examines the EU's international investment policy by casting a glance on the EU–Canada Free Trade Agreement, the EU's approach to sustainable development, and its relationship to international law. Alongside analysing said agreements and contextualizing them, the different ways of enforcement are presented, leading to the conclusion that the EU can contribute to the further development of international investment law in two ways: by emphasizing the ‘right to regulate’ and advocating reforms in investor–State-dispute settlement; a precondition being, of course, that first EU agreements to that effect will be ratified in the European Parliament.

Keywords:   European Union investment policy, EU–Canada Free Trade Agreement (CETA), sustainable development, Investor–State Dispute Settlement (ISDS)
