      Abstract

      With world wide trends in oil consumption, and a growing fear of its depletion, global energy investors are forced to enter into newly emerging and high-risk energy markets. One such market is the Russian Federation. Russia looms on the horizon as an immense opportunity for domestic and foreign investors. Despite Russia's willingness to welcome foreign investment capital into its growing economy, foreign investors appear to be reluctant to accept the Russian Federation as a reliable business partner. This thesis outlines some of the major reasons for the current investor's concerns. It entails a survey of the various investment protection mechanisms that are available to foreign investors in Russia under contract and public international law.
