ECIPE Seminar: The Future of Investment Dispute Resolution – The Role of Courts

December 15 2015
Venue: ECIPE , Rue Belliard 4-6 Brussels 1040
Speakers: Marco Bronckers, Colin Brown, Peter Chase
Time: 12:30

What role should courts play in international investment dispute resolution?

Some recent proposals to reform the system for dispute resolution in international investment agreements suggest a new role for courts. The European Commission, for instance, has recently proposed the establishment of a new international investment court as part of the TTIP. Experts remain divided about the role of courts in investor-state disputes. Some argue that the current system of investment dispute resolution better serves the objectives of protecting rights in a fair and effective manner. Others suggest national courts should play a central role in international investment disputes and that they should be open to complaints from other parties than foreign investors. Please join us for a lunch seminar discussing various views about the role of courts in investment dispute resolution.
