The Nineteenth Investment Treaty Forum Public Conference:

The Regionalization of Investment

Friday 14th September 2012

States are increasingly framing their international investment treaties within multilateral, regional arrangements. The purpose of this ITF public conference is to explore the nature of these arrangements, examine the motivations behind their development, and inquire about their implications for the field of international investment law generally. More broadly, the conference will ask whether regionalization portends a move towards greater global harmonization or whether it suggests a new balkanization of the investment treaty regime.

Among the regional arrangements to be examined at this conference are:

• 2012 China-Japan-Korea Trilateral Investment Treaty
• 2009 ASEAN Comprehensive Investment Agreement
• 2009 ASEAN-Australia-New Zealand Free Trade Agreement
• 2007 Investment Agreement for the COMESA Common Investment Area
• 2006 Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America Peoples' Trade Treaty (ALBA-TCP)
• 2004 Dominican Republic-Central America-United States Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA-DR)
• Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations
• Union of South American Nations (UNASUR) negotiations


CPD points may be claimed by both barristers and solicitors by attending this event
