EU Framework for Foreign Direct Investment Control provides an analysis of a new and controversial European Union (EU) approach on how to deal with disparate attitudes among EU Member States with regard to foreign direct investment (FDI). FDI has grown considerably worldwide in recent decades, alongside the no-less considerable development of international supply chains. In the EU, stock held by foreign investors exceeds EUR 6 billion, while stock held in the rest of the world by EU investors exceeds EUR 7 billion. Moreover, FDI screening is provided on the grounds of public order and security, or on comparable grounds, which under the EU treaties are subject to reserved Member State powers. This important book analyses the current and proposed regimes of FDI screening in the EU, highlighting mechanisms designed to enhance FDIs advantages and minimize its drawbacks.
