Compiled by Burghard Ilge, Both ENDS, 27/11/2011

Following the entry into force of the Treaty of Lisbon only the EU may legislate and adopt legally binding acts within the area of foreign direct investment. The Member States are able to do so only if empowered by the Union, in accordance with Article 2(1) of the Treaty. The Lisbon Treaty was signed by the EU member states on 13 December 2007, and entered into force on 1 December 2009. Below we list publicly known changes made by EU member states to their collection of Bilateral Investment Treaties [BITs] in the period reaching from one year prior to the entry into force of the Lisbon treaty until the summer 2011.
