Latin America facing investor-state claims

This paper studies the claims of Multinational Enterprises against Latinamerican States at international arbitration instances. As these claims stem from the subscription of multiple international agreements on investment, the convenience of such agreements for the achievement of develoment goals is at stake. Our work goes on revising the reactions of several of the region’s states in order to overcome the inconvenience of such claims, considering them insufficient. As an alternative, we put forward the rescue of Calvo’s doctrine, recovering every state’s jurisdictional sovereignty.
