EU smashed BITs. Now what?

Intra-EU bilateral investment treaties are a thing of the past. That's very bad news for investors in European assets, write our guest columnists.

Intra-EU bilateral investment treaties were maybe a little taken for granted, until they were terminated earlier this year by a piece of legislation that went largely unnoticed amid the covid-19 pandemic. With nothing to replace them, a lack of clear legal framework, and in some cases perhaps the national court systems themselves, pose serious risks to investors in European assets, write Paulina Pietkiewicz, of Abris Capital Partners and Martin Bresson of Invest Europe.
