Chapter 1 provides the conceptual and normative framework within which this book is developed. It begins with setting out the international law context within which EU foreign investment law is born, focusing on the socio-economic reasons that require international regulation of foreign investment and the historical evolution of international investment law. The second part is dedicated to the quest for a definition of foreign investment, aiming to consolidate the divergent definitions of foreign investment that are found in international investment law and EU law. Thirdly, this chapter identifies the regulatory scope and the sources of EU foreign investment law, stressing the divergent focus of EU regulation on different aspects of foreign investment.

Keywords:   sources of investment law, regulatory scope, historical evolution, political environment, economic environment, investment definition, foreign direct investment, portfolio investment, characteristics of investment
