Investment treaties are exposing the state to serious risks to its capacity to carry out its sovereign responsibilities. They make sovereign concessions in a general fashion to a wide range of actors who are unknown to the state. States should make clear to foreign investors they will protect them but not at such a high cost to sovereignty – says Gus Van Harten, Professor of Law at Osgoode Hall Law School, York University in Canada.
