Transitional Justice & Foreign Direct Investments

States that face calamities, either social, climate-related, political, or otherwise, are faced with economic distress that requires restitution to create a sustainable ecosystem for the immediate society.

Leaders of such States are incentivized to attract foreign direct investments to address any economic distress that could have occurred. However, foreign investors and multinational corporations may perceive transitional jurisdictions as high-risk.

W&W assists States and State leaders on establishing transitional justice foundations to attract foreign investors and revitalize an otherwise stalled economy, reducing uncertainty and providing more confidence to attract higher levels of investment than those States that do not engage in such efforts.

Our focus is on investor protection rights tools that can be implemented post-calamity as part of a State’s transitional justice efforts; assisting States with developing an investor-friendly ecosystem that can attract high levels of foreign investment.
