Since 2008, Associate Professor of Law Jan Kleinheisterkamp has been working to balance corporate legal security with the mandate of states to regulate in the public interest in international arbitration. IIA Navigator This IIAs database – the IIA Navigator – is managed by the IIA section of UNCTAD. You can browse THE IIAs that are completed by a given country or group of countries, view the recently concluded IIAs, or use advanced research for sophisticated research tailored to your needs. Please mention: UNCTAD, International Investment Agreements Navigator, available on IIA Mapping Project The IIA Mapping Project is a cooperative initiative between UNCTAD and universities around the world to represent IIA content. The resulting database serves as a tool to understand trends in CEW development, assess the prevalence of different policy approaches, and identify examples of contracts. The Mapping of IIA Content allows you to browse the results of the project (the page will be regularly updated as new results become available). Please mention: UNCTAD, Mapping of IA Content, available at More information: Mapping Project Description – Methodology document This research served as the basis for a second report to the European Parliament on EU financial responsibility from ISDS, which helped to develop the potential impact of future European investment contracts on eu and its member states` rules of accountability. Kleinheisterkamp has thus highlighted the need to rethink existing approaches to investor protection or, at the very least, to include fundamental guarantees for the European political space. The IIA browser is constantly adapted by reviewing and commenting from UN member states. It is based mainly on information provided by governments on a voluntary basis. A contract is entered into a country`s IGE census after its formal conclusion; Contracts that have been negotiated but have not been signed are not counted. A contract is excluded from the IGE census as soon as its termination comes into force, whether or not it may continue to have legal effects on certain investments during its „survival“ period („sunset“). If the contract is replaced, only one of the contracts between the same parties is accounted for.

Depending on the situation, the contract counted may be „old“ if it remains in force until the newly concluded AI is ratified. While every effort is made to ensure the accuracy and completeness of the content, UNCTAD assumes no responsibility for errors or omissions in this data. The information and texts contained in the database have a purely informative purpose and have no official or legal status. If there is any doubt about the contents of the database, it is recommended that you contact the relevant ministry or states concerned. Users are encouraged to report agreements, errors or omissions via the online contact form. Jan Kleinheisterkamp`s LSE research has influenced the European Union`s new policy on international investment agreements Under the influence of the first kleinheisterkamps study, The European Parliament`s Committee on International Trade (INTA) reiterated in 2011 the European Commission`s proposal to review and, if necessary, terminate the existing investment contracts of EU Member States if they are at odds with EU policy.
