EFILA 2019 Annual Conference: The EU and the future of international investment law and arbitration

Description

4th Annual EFILA Conference

The EU and the future of international investment law and arbitration

With the entering into force of the Lisbon Treaty 10 years ago the EU has become a dynamic policy actor in international investment law and arbitration. In particular, within the context of the increasing public concerns against TTIP, BITs and ISDS, the European Commission has been active in “reforming” and “reshaping” the investment law and arbitration landscape, for example with the EU-Singapore and EU-Vietnam FTAs, which contain many “innovative” features such as the investment court system (ICS). Another area in which the increasing influence and interaction between investment law and EU law is particularly visible is the Energy Charter Treaty (ECT).

The 2019 Annual Conference will take stock of these developments by discussing the EU’s external investment policy generally, by focusing specifically on the EU’s approach towards Asia and by analysing the EU’s impact on the ECT. In addition, a high profile key-note speaker will address the Conference.

As was the case in the previous very successful Annual EFILA Conferences, this Conference will again showcase many distinguished and experienced scholars and practitioners in the area of investment law and arbitration. As always, the Conference will be very interactive and allow for sufficient time for discussion between the speakers and the audience.
