Uluslararası Yatırım Anlaşmaları Rejimi konusunda devam eden pek çok tartışma bulunmaktadır. Bunlardan birisi gelişmekte olan ülkelerin kalkınma stratejileri üzerindeki etkisidir. Bu çalışma, Uluslararası Yatırım Anlaşmalarının hukuki çıkarımlarını kalkınma perspektifinden sorgulamayı amaçlamaktadır. Çalışma niteliksel bir yapıya sahip olup, kalkınma konuları ile ilgili olduğu düşünülen her bir anlaşma maddesini irdelemekte ve bu bağlamda anlaşmaların uygulamasında karşılaşılan sorunları ortaya koymaktadır. Bulgular, yıllarca süren deneyim ile beraber bazı anlaşma maddelerinin beklenmedik sonuçlar yarattığını ve anlaşmaların hukuki çıkarımlarının gelişmekte olan ülkeler için kalkınma açısından fayda üretmekte yetersiz kaldığını önermektedir. Bununla beraber, gelecek için anlaşmaların yeniden müzakere edilmesi yönünde hala fırsatlar bulunmaktadır.

Much debate is ongoing regarding International Investment Agreement (IIA) Regime. One of the issues is its effect on economic development strategies of developing countries. This paper aims to examine International Investment Agreements by questioning its legal implications in development perspective. By using a qualitative research design, it addresses each provision that is considered to have an impact on the issues of development and presents the development problems faced in the application of IIAs. Findings suggest that decades of experience shows unexpected results in application of certain clauses and legal implications of IIAs is insufficient in producing benefits for economic development in developing countries. For the future, nevertheless, there is still a room for improvement through renegotiation of the treaties.
