Practising Virtue

This chapter focuses on the legal protection of private economic rights in the transnational arena. It approaches this subject by considering the regulation of transnational economic relationships at three different levels: first, where a party’s rights are not regulated or governed by any contract, but where there is nonetheless a need to protect one’s interest or rights in commercial property; second, where there is a contract between the parties, by which they look to protect their rights as between themselves; and third, where a foreign investor looks to protect its investment against unlawful interference by a host state via arbitration and treaty rights. The chapter concludes by proposing ideas towards a better and perhaps fuller model for the transnational protection of private rights. In essence, it suggests the harmonization of laws on recognition and enforcement of judgments; improvements in and convergence of dispute resolution processes; and deeper convergence of substantive law.
