Investment Treaty Forum and UNCITRAL Seminar

UNCITRAL Rules on Transparency

Thursday 20th March 2014

This special, joint meeting of the Investment Treaty Forum and UNCITRAL will address the new UNCITRAL Rules on Transparency in Treaty-based Investor-State Arbitration and the draft UNCITRAL convention on transparency.

The new UNCITRAL Rules on Transparency, which come into force on 1 April 2014, are a major development in investor-state treaty practice. This meeting will examine the process by which the Rules have been developed, the content of the Rules, and the immediate and future implications for practitioners and states. In addition, speakers will address the UNCITRAL Arbitration Working Group's draft convention on transparency, which, if adopted, would bring the Rules on Transparency into application for existing investment treaties.

Please note that this is an invitation-only event.
