  3. Scoping Study: International Investment Agreements

    19 January 2022

    The aim of the report is to gain a better initial understanding of the references to labour in investment agreements. The main purpose is to scope investment agreements on references for keywords that can be related to labour protection since they might have an impact on the application of investment agreements and potentially address concerns with regard to freezing or lowering labour protection. In this report, the focus is on keywords that can be linked to labour protection, but which as such do not yet constitute a labour provision as defined by the International Labour Organization (ILO). These keywords can be considered as proxies to gain insight into the importance of labour concerns in investment agreements. The search of keywords is executed on two datasources from UNCTAD. One which contains all negotiated investment agreements and one which contains so-called Model Bilateral Investment Agreements.
