Towards an International Investment Court?

Institutional and Political Issues
Date: Wednesday, 20 February 2019 15:00 - 18:00

Venue: Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB), Institut de sociologie, Avenue Jeanne 44, 1050 Bruxelles - room Somville (second floor). www.ulb.ac.be/campus/solbosch/plan-S.html

The legitimacy of investor-State dispute settlement (ISDS) has come under fire due to high profile cases of investors’ challenges against host State regulatory measures. In light also of controversial trade negotiations with the United States (TTIP) and Canada (CETA), the European Commission has proposed a new system for the settlement of investment disputes. The European Union is now pursuing the establishment of a Multilateral Investment Court (MIC) as a global solution for ISDS legitimacy concerns in the framework of the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL). 

Bringing together high-level experts in international, EU and investment law, this symposium explores to what extent the EU response to identified ISDS concerns is achievable with respect to both EU internal and external dynamics. This timely discussion evolves around the EU’s proposal to UNCITRAL to establish a MIC and the Advocate General’s Opinion on compatibility of the CETA ISDS mechanism with EU law.

The event is free of charge but registration is mandatory before 18 February (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
