In a timely article, Jason Yackee proposes a pair of important, attractive, and politically plausible reforms to the international investment law (IIL) system. Because his proposals offer real promise as a way to bolster the regime’s credibility and efficacy, this response will engage both the particulars proposed and the theory that informs them. I hope to suggest that, even for those who may not share Yackee’s theoretical framework or his normative reservations about the IIL regime, his proposals offer an attractive response to the slow-burn crisis of legitimacy that has dogged the regime for more than a decade.
