In: Hindelang, Steffen; Moberg, Andreas (Hrsg.): YSEC Yearbook of Socio-Economic Constitutions 2020 - A Common European Law on Investment Screening (CELIS), 1 , Springer, Forthcoming, ISBN: 978-3-030-43756-5.


This book contains 30 chapters written by leading Asian, European and North American experts on foreign direct investment on the recently adopted Regulation (EU) 2019/452 establishing a framework for the screening of foreign direct investment into the Union (hereinafter the EU Screening Regulation). It is the result of a conference organized at the University of Gothenburg in March 2019, just 2 weeks before the EU Screening Regulation was adopted. The aim of the conference was to gather experts on foreign investment from all over the world in order to take stock of the historic move towards a Common European Law on Investment Screening (CELIS). Our ambition, both as conference organizers and as editors of this volume, has been to facilitate the growth of a research community interested in investment screening in particular.
