Event Details

Mineral resources have become ever-more essential to the production of goods in the global economy. This in turn has made the mining industry of ever-increasing importance. At the same time, international events of different kinds over the past decade have meant that many rare but critical minerals are in short supply in global production chains. This includes in relation to the rare metals required in the production cycle of many renewable energies that are essential for addressing climate change issues.

In this context, there are increasing calls for more investment to find and produce such minerals from diverse sources. This seminar explores the role and effect that investment treaty structuring and investment treaty arbitration (as well as other forms of investor-State dispute settlement) can and do have on the mining industry worldwide. A panel of experts will address a number of the latest topics in this important field that relate to the global mining sector.
