Summary
The growing demand for natural resources has triggered a "race" to their exploitation and possession, especially in developing countries. Most desired are water, land, forests, raw materials, fisheries and genetic resources. Emerging economies, Western states, multinational corporations and international financial institutions have become the bigger "buyers" in this race that, no one hand, creates investment opportunities and, on the other, threatens local communities and environmental protection. Natural Resources Grabbing: An International Law Perspective addresses the adverse effects of large-scale investments in natural resources, showing the weakness and the emerging trends of international law in this context.
