International arbitration of foreign direct investment disputes: benign or malign for FDI-induced development in Bangladesh

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This articles examines arbitration clauses in Bangladesh BITs and shows how they tilt to protect corporate interest by analysing recent arbitration awards. The peripheral policy approach of these awards fails to address the perennial problem of FDI-induced development in Bangladesh. It offers recommendations for FDI liberalisation and regulation to co-exist pragmatically by balancing the competing interests of investors and Bangladesh.
