IiA Mapping Project The IIA Mapping Project is a cooperative initiative between UNCTAD and universities around the world to represent the content of II A. The resulting database serves as a tool to understand trends in CEW development, assess the prevalence of different policy approaches, and identify examples of contracts. The Mapping of IIA Content allows you to browse the results of the project (the page will be regularly updated as new results become available).

Provisions for compensation for losses suffered by foreign investors as a result of expropriation or war and dispute are generally an essential element of these agreements. Most of them also regulate the cross-border transfer of funds related to foreign investment. Environmental regulations are also becoming more common in I2As. 104 Among the main guarantees contained in investment agreements are: preferential trade agreements and investment agreements (PTIA) are broader economic agreements between countries concluded with the aim of facilitating international trade and the cross-border transfer of factors of production. These may include economic integration agreements, free trade agreements (FAs), Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs) or other similar types of agreements covering, among other things, foreign investment provisions. In PTIA, the foreign investment section is only a small part of the contract, which usually includes one or two chapters.
Other topics covered in the PTIA include trade in goods and services, tariffs and non-tariff barriers, customs procedures, specific rules for certain sectors, competition, intellectual property, temporary entry of people and much more. PTIA follows trade and investment liberalization as part of this broader priority. Often, the structure and appearance of the chapter on foreign investment is similar to a bit.
