Corporate Structure and Investor-State Dispute Settlement Outcomes

Project Details


This project seeks to investigate the ways in which the corporate structure of foreign investors impacts on their ability/willingness to remain in host markets, and by implication on their ISDS behaviour. In particular we seek to analyse whether minority shareholders are more likely to press ISDS charges than majority shareholders.

Key findings

The project has thus far involved the development of a new dataset, building off of Wellhausen (2016) by adding firm-level data on corporate ownership structure.
