A contract of State, explains Professor Leben, is an official report drawn up between the State and a foreign body with regards to an international economic operation, that generally, but not necessarily, concerns an investment. This matter has evolved considerably during the last decades, and has led to many significant doctrinal and jurisprudential developments. Professor Leben proposes a doctrinal synthesis of the matter which he develops in three chapters.
