The Sixteenth Investment Treaty Forum Public Conference:
Is There an Evolving Customary Interna

Friday 6th May 2011

What is this event about?
This ITF Public Conference will consider whether there is now an emerging customary international law relating to investment protection. It has been suggested that with over 3,000 investment treaties regulating investment worldwide that some of the substantive protections provided in these treaties have, as Judge Schwebel suggested 'seeped into the corpus of customary international law'. Practitioners, arbitrators and academics will debate which if any of these standards have now been accepted so widely as to comprise customary international law. It is an issue that is being submitted before tribunals in investment cases by counsel and yet there seems to be very little consensus in the investment community. This topic is thus ripe for review and should generate some interesting discussion from members of the Forum.

The event programme is available to view here.

This event is free for members of the Investment Treaty Forum, who can book by email.
