Abstract
This Perspective challenges the idea that international investment agreements (IIAs) as a whole move from traditional "lean" (European-style) IIAs to re-calibrated "balanced" (North American-style) treaties. Instead, the IIA landscape is becoming increasingly multifaceted and complex, with different states following different models. This casts doubt on the idea that there are common structures underpinning investment treaties. Yet, there are a number of centripetal forces that hold investment law together at the level of principles and dispute settlement.
