Editor-in-Chief: Karl P. Sauvant - The Vale Columbia Center on Sustainable
International Investment seeks to be a leading forum for discussion by scholars,
policy makers, development advocates and other stakeholders of issues related to
foreign direct investment (FDI) in the global economy, paying special attention to
the contribution of this investment to sustainable development. It promotes the
analysis of trends in FDI, the consequences of FDI for sustainable development and
the consideration of appropriate public polices for sustainable foreign direct
investment. Its objectives are to analyze important topical policy-oriented issues
related to FDI and develop and disseminate practical approaches and solutions to
increase the contribution of FDI to sustainable development. Drawing on its location
at Columbia University, it provides students with a challenging learning environment
and promotes teaching and learning about FDI worldwide.
