Legal framework conditions and their interaction are often invisible in everyday life. Yet it is powerful forces that influence government action and determine who benefits from foreign investment and who loses. Understanding these legal frameworks and how they interact is crucial for anyone concerned about how foreign investment can be better used to support, rather than weaken, sustainable development and human rights. This guide provides a brief overview of the host government`s obligations under international investment law, international human rights law, national law and relevant investor-state contracts. It also highlights some of the ways in which these legal obligations may influence or conflict with each other. This decree was repealed by the law of 23. It was amended again on 14 December 1927 and supplemented by special decrees of 23 May 1926 and 17 April 1928. The 1923 law created a main concession committee and the legal basis for conducting negotiations and transferring Russian ownership to foreign companies. See A.C.

In 1982, the Polish Parliament adopted the Law on the Principles of the Exercise of the Economic Activity of Small Industry on the Territory of the Polish People`s Republic by Foreign Legal and Natural Persons. Later, in 1986, more liberal laws were passed, in particular the Law on Foreign-invested Enterprises. However, foreign capital participation in the socialist economies of Eastern Europe was limited and controlled by the state until the late 1980s. See C. L.

Her „Russkaya Gornopromyshlennaya Korporatsiya“ was re-established as „Lena Goldfields“. He received a concession for a period of sixty years. The treaty, signed in April 1923, was subsequently approved by the Soviet government in August 1925. He envisioned Urquhart investing no less than 22 million rubles to reach a production level of 7 tons of gold (or more), 16 tons of silver, about 10,000 tons of zinc and 1 million tons of copper per year. By 1926, the company was capable of producing 10 tons of gold per year, accounting for 30% of the total production of the USSR, and employed more than 12,000 people. In December 1929, the concession contract was terminated by the Soviet government. See K.H. Kennedy, Mining Tsar: the Life and Times of Leslie Urquhart (1986); B.

This chapter provides a retrospective analysis of FDI legislation. This is partly a response to the work of Gordley, who noted that the law of a single country cannot be an independent subject of study. To understand the law in a single country, one must look beyond its borders, indeed, beyond one`s own time.1 However, the purpose of this historical review is also to present a comparative historical overview of the common and divergent features of Kazakh legislation on foreign direct investment. In trying to understand the role that the state plays and should play, it is useful to examine the structure of law.2 Since rules have been rightly described as the „skin“ of living politics,3 it is equally important to identify the correlations between FDI legislation and changes in socio-political structures, and monitoring changes in dominant State policies in favour of foreign direct investment. Moreover, the legislation undoubtedly reflects the government`s choice in its history, principles and structure. The following section examines the evolution of relevant legislation in order to assess the overall dynamics of foreign direct investment legislation before and immediately after Kazakhstan`s independence.
