The Articles on Responsibility of States for Internationally Wrongful Acts, adopted by the International Law Commission in 2001, have had a profound impact on international dispute settlement generally and investor-State arbitrations in particular. The speakers will explore a number of issues concerning the treatment of the Articles by arbitral tribunals, including the general applicability of the Articles in investment disputes, and the use made by tribunals of specific provisions of the Articles, including the rules on attribution of conduct to the State. Comments will also be made as to the recent UN General Assembly debate on the eventual fate of the Articles.

The seminar forms part of the Investment Treaty Forum's seminar series but given the interest of the broader legal community, it is open to the public.
