Calvo Doctrine

foreign investment

The Calvo Doctrine (or principle) holds that jurisdiction in international investment disputes lies with the country in which the investment is located; thus, the investor has no recourse but to use the local courts. The principle, named after an Argentinian jurist, has been applied throughout Latin America and other areas of the world.
