Abstract

Paying more attention to environmental protection along with remarkable effect of investment on the environment; countries and international organizations proceeded to legislate special rules and regulations to minimize the negative reciprocal effect of investment and the environment and regulate the relations and the limits of these two domains, as well. Governments and international organizations have tried to reduce the severity and damage of environmental investment measures, as much as possible. At the same time, however, there reported no interrupts of investment in global investment and development. This increase in sensitivity has revealed the existing conflicts between environmental requirements and commitments arising from investment contracts. These conflicts are generally based on two types of principle conflicts (normative) and legitimate (legal) conflicts. The present study aims to investigate the types of conflicts and how to resolve them in different courts.
