This study focuses on Re-thinking Bilateral Investment Treaties in Nigeria: The Morocco-Nigeria BIT in view. Two countries, Morocco and Nigeria, signing BITs commit themselves to several specific standards on the treatment of foreign investments within their jurisdiction. If there is a breach of such commitments, BITs provide expansive procedures for the resolution of disputes. By and large, the substantive provisions of BITs are similar to Rethinking Bilateral Investment Treaties: Critical Issues and Policy Choices across countries, but there can be important differences between treaties in different jurisdictions. In the absence of a comprehensive multilateral agreement on investment, cross-border investment flows are currently governed by bilateral and regional investment treaties along with investment chapters in FTAs. It is fair to say that BITs have emerged as the primary source of international investment law to protect and promote cross-border investment flows.
