Listen to the audio recording  

On 8 November 2018, the BIICL Investment Treaty Forum and the Energy Charter Secretariat, are hosting a roundtable in Brussels, to discuss the application of the legitimate expectations concept in international investment law.

The rapid proliferation of international investment treaties brought the concern over the legitimacy of the system of investor-State dispute settlement, which resulted in proposals for its radical redesign. Against this background, this roundtable examines how ethical and the rule of law concerns can be better addressed within the existing system.

The roundtable panel will be a part of the Legal Training organised by the Energy Charter Secretariat. Training participants are invited for free. For non-participants of the training, please refer to the pricing and registration section below.

Speakers include

  • Professor Nicolas Angelet, Liedekerke, Brussels
  • Mariam Gotsiridze, Head of the Department of State Representation in Arbitration and Foreign State Courts at the Ministry of Justice of Georgia, Tbilisi
  • Professor Yarik Kryvoi, British Institute of International and Comparative Law, London (chair)
  • Lucja Nowak, Hogan Lovells, Munich
