The Fifteenth Investment Treaty Forum Public Conference

Recent Developments in Investment Arbitration Procedure

10th September 2010

This conference assembles leading experts from government, private practice and academia to examine important developments and emerging trends in investment arbitration. Among the topics under consideration will be developments in the use of provisional measures in investment arbitration, the practicalities of working with witnesses and experts, and the representation of States before ICSID tribunals. Also considered will be on-going developments with respect to the participation of non-parties in investor-State arbitrations and the evolving rules pertaining to the transparency of ICSID proceedings. Finally, the conference will address the perennial concern of costs and fees, examining mechanisms to cut down on costs and time; the issues of obtaining security for costs; and trends in the awarding of costs in investment arbitration and whether investment arbitration is or should be different from commercial arbitration. The conference will provide an ample opportunity for discussion among panellists and attendees and it is hoped that through this dialogue some best practices on procedural matters may be distilled.
