Louis T. Wells, Jr. will present the key findings and policy recommendations from his new book, Making Foreign Investment Safe: Property Rights and National Sovereignty. The book, co-authored with Rafiq Ahmed, describes how firms, countries, and multilateral development organizations can build a conflict-management system that balances the legitimate economic and social concerns of the host countries and those of investors. Without these changes, multinational corporations will lose profitable opportunities and poor countries will not gain the contributions that foreign investment can make toward alleviating poverty.
