Energy Dispute Resolution: Investment protection, Transit and the Energy Charter Treaty

22nd October 2009

In today's energy-dependent world, securing energy investments is a challenge for producer, consumer and transit countries alike. The dramatic breakdown in gas deliveries from Russia to Europe in early 2009 demonstrates the importance of secure transit mechanisms for grid-bound energy investments.

The Energy Charter Treaty (ECT), signed in 1994 and with 53 members, is the only multilateral treaty which covers both investment protection and transit dispute resolution issues.

Following two highly successful conferences in Stockholm in June 2005 and in Washington in May 2007, the Energy Charter Secretariat is pleased to announce this conference, which is organised in conjunction with the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce, the British Institute of International and Comparative Law, the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes, the International Chamber of Commerce and the Permanent Court of Arbitration.
