Submissions

Philosophy

The EFILA Blog editorial board welcomes any contribution that pertains to investor state dispute settlement (ISDS), and the intersection of ISDS with EU law, the ECT and public policy. While contributions with an EU law or policy element (broadly understood) are primarily sought, exceptions may be made on an occasional basis for topics of broad and significant importance to ISDS generally.

Not only articles advocating a certain position are encouraged, but also comprehensive critical analyses, replies and reviews. Moreover, active debate is welcome on the blog, ensuring the possibility of all parties to be heard and a common symbolic space of dialogue to be established.
