Given the present debate – on both sides of the Atlantic (and beyond) – surrounding the future of ISDS and bilateral investment treaties, the EFILA Blog editorial board believes that a veritable dialogue must take place, allowing all arguments to be heard and all diverging positions to be defended. Discussing the status of an international regime should take place at the very center of the legal community itself and not be left as a mere political bargaining chip.
For these reasons, EFILA offers its Blog as a space for open dialogue, welcoming any contribution that pertains to the field of of international (investment) law and arbitration, EU law and public policy, as well as the dynamics of these multiple legal, political and economic spheres. Moreover, the new impetus of signing regional free trade agreements in Asia-Pacific is of utmost interest for the existing dialogue, showing how other parts of the world advance their investment cooperation despite this troubled global background.
