The Legal Regime of Foreign Private Investment in Sudan and Saudi Arabia

Synopsis

Although developing countries require foreign investment for growth, investors often encounter a range of obstacles in the existing economic order. This comparative study of two developing countries with similar socio-ethnic backgrounds--the Sudan and Saudi Arabia--considers how international and Islamic law have evolved in new directions in post-Soviet years. Topics include incentives and facilities for foreign investors, investment treaties, investment insurance programs and remedies for aggrieved investors.
