Africa's international investment law regimes, Won L. Kidane.

Africa's International Investments Law Regimes examines the relationship between African states and the International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) through a qualitative review of ICSID cases from the 1970s to today. In his examination, Won Kidane looks at how African states have both shaped the jurisprudence of the institution and debunked claims of systemic bias
