Event Details

The proposed Multilateral Investment Court will appoint a permanent, remunerated, and state-appointed body of judges who will be randomly allocated to cases. In doing so, the Multilateral Investment Court seeks to overcome concerns regarding the independence and impartiality of party-appointed arbitrators in the ISDS system.

This debate considers whether the Multilateral Investment Court's method of appointing judges will be equally favourable to all disputing parties, or whether it will perpetuate the imbalances in an already asymmetric system.
