RETHINKING INTERNATIONAL INVESTMENT GOVERNANCE: PRINCIPLES FOR THE 21st CENTURY

Book launch

Organized by the Columbia Center on Sustainable Investment (CCSI). this break-out session will highlight and discuss a new interdisciplinary book on how to align investment policy with sustainable development objectives. The book, which is free to download and will be distributed at the event, was collaboratively written by 12 experts from different disciplines and regions over the course of 5 days through the “Booksprint” process. The book identifies core substantive priorities and procedural principles to guide future international cooperation on investment governance and proposes a new International Framework for Investment and Sustainable Development in line with UNCTAD’s Reform Package for the International Investment Regime.

The book and the event aim to generate discussions among a range of government officials and other stakeholders working on, affected by, or interested in international investment and sustainable development, not limited to IIA experts.
