What this meeting is about

This meeting brings together high-level speakers from government, business, academia and civil society to examine the European Union as an investment treaty actor. The day will include a keynote dialogue among members of the Swedish and European Parliament, as well as panels looking at the role of the European Commission in shaping the EU's investment treaties and the substance of the deals which Europe is negotiating. Among the central questions raised by this meeting is whether the investment chapters in Europe's treaties with Canada, Singapore and the United States (TTIP) are likely to be good for European economic growth or whether they are more likely to expose Europe and its Member States to a future of litigation from foreign investors.

  • Freya Baetens, University of Leiden
  • Colin Brown, European Commission, DG Trade
  • Marc Bungenberg, Institute of European Studies, Saarland University
  • N. Jansen Calamita, Investment Treaty Forum
