This 2007 third edition continues to be a comprehensive and authoritative guide to the business, practice, law, and practical use of project finance. It covers the complete project finance structure, from conception to negotiation to debt closing, and from project difficulties to successful restructuring. The book continues to be accessible to those with little experience in project finance, while maintaining the insight and detail of previous editions that has made it a valuable reference for the experienced lawyer, manager, banker, contractor, and government official. This edition focuses on a real-world, practical approach to project finance, without the overuse of case studies and economic theory. Yet the contract forms, detailed glossary, index, and project finance bibliography make it a complete text.

Principles of International Economic Law provides a comprehensive overview of the central topics in international economic law, with an emphasis on the interplay between the different economic and political interests on both the international and domestic levels. Following recent tendencies, the book sets the classic topics of international economic law, like WTO law, investment protection, commercial law and monetary law in context with aspects of human rights, environmental protection and the legitimate claims of developing countries. The book draws a concise picture of the architecture of international economic law with all its complexities, without getting lost in fragmented details. Providing a perfect introductory text to the field of international economic law, the book thoroughly analyses legal developments within their wider political, economic, or social context. Topics covered range from codes of conduct for multinational enterprises, to the human rights implications of the exploitation of natural resources. The book demonstrates the economic foundations and economic implications of legal frameworks. It puts into profile the often complex relationship between, on the one hand, international standards on liberalization and economic rationality and, on the other, state sovereignty and national preferences. It describes the new forms of economic cooperation which have developed in recent decades, such as the growing number of transnational companies in the private sector, and forms of cooperation between states such as the G8 or G20. This fully updated second edition covers new aspects and developments including the growing importance of corporate social responsibility, mega-regional-agreements like CETA, TTIP, and TPP, trade and investment related aspects of human rights law.

Global Project Finance, Human Rights and Sustainable Development

Many infrastructure projects around the world are funded through the project finance method, which combines private financing with public sector backing from multilateral finance institutions such as the World Bank. This examination of the theoretical and practical implications of such funding begins with a discussion of the relationship between the financial structuring of these projects and finance, policy and legal disciplines, especially in the form of investment law, human rights and environmental law. A number of case studies are then examined to provide practical insights into the application (or otherwise) of human rights and sustainable development objectives within such projects. While these theoretical perspectives do not conclude that the project finance method detracts from the application or implementation of human rights and sustainable development objectives, they do highlight the potential for the prioritisation of investment returns at the expense of human rights and environmental protection standards.

Fondée sur une méthode pragmatique, cette étude propose pour la première fois une analyse systématique du Build, Operate and Transfer (BOT) qu’elle éclaire par une démarche interdisciplinaire, ancrée principalement autour de l’approche Law and Economics. Considéré comme un impératif économique et même moral, l’investissement dans les infrastructures et les services collectifs participe, dans une large mesure, à la croissance économique ainsi qu’à l’amélioration des conditions de vie humaine dans toute nation. Toutefois de nos jours, les États ou les collectivités publiques n’ont plus les moyens de financer la totalité des programmes d’investissement en besoins collectifs par le budget et l'emprunt publics, d’où l’idée des partenariats public-privé (PPP), lesquels s’imposent comme une alternative presqu'incontournable pour le financement des besoins collectifs. Le concept de Build, Operate and Transfer (BOT) constitue une des modalités de ces PPP. Il est un procédé de financement et de gestion privés permettant aux personnes publiques de garder la haute main tant sur l’orientation stratégique de projets d’intérêt collectif que sur la propriété des biens qui en sont issus. Il s’agit alors d’allier utilité socio-économique et rentabilité ou, plus généralement, de concilier la logique d’État et la logique de marché. Sa mise en oeuvre soulève de nombreuses questions au rang desquelles : la conciliation de l’intérêt général et des intérêts privés dans le cadre d’opérations de longue durée ; le traitement des risques inhérents à ce type d’opérations ou encore l’affirmation de l’interdépendance entre les obligations des partenaires. D’intérêt aussi bien théorique que pratique, cette étude démontre que la dimension juridique de la mise en oeuvre du BOT est cruciale pour en assurer le succès. Elle vise à contribuer in fine à dégager un statut du BOT et, partant, permet d’apprécier l’interchangeabilité entre le public et le privé et de définir en conséquence des règles et des mécanismes de coopération et d’échange entre ces deux sphères. En outre, l’étude souhaite offrir aux États et à leurs gouvernements, aux praticiens, promoteurs, investisseurs ainsi qu'aux juristes, une vue originale, globale et cohérente du concept de BOT. De même, en éclairant les faiblesses, les limites et les risques d’abus tout en présentant les avantages et les potentialités de cette technique, l’ouvrage se donne également pour ambition d’encourager le développement de cette dernière et, au-delà, des PPP en général.
