IIA Mapping Project database. The new database is part of UNCTAD's IIA Navigator and contains a detailed mapping of 1,400 international investment agreements (IIAs).

The UNCTAD IIA Mapping Project offers a tool for policymakers and researchers to analyse trends in the drafting of investment treaties. It builds upon UNCTAD’s
Investment Policy Framework for Sustainable Development.

The IIA Mapping Project database allows users to:
Browsing through the IIA Mapping Project database will help stakeholders prepare for UNCTAD's High-level IIA Conference, scheduled for 19 July, as part of the 2016 World Investment Forum in Nairobi, Kenya.

Individual treaties are mapped by law students from participating universities, under the supervision of their professors and with the overall guidance and coordination of UNCTAD.

We thank
our partners – students and professors – at more than 25 universities around the globe for their time and efforts in support of UNCTAD's IIA Mapping Project

With best regards,

James X. Zhan
