About this event
International investment law is facing many new issues, ranging from investment law and sustainable development (e.g., renewable energy, environment governance) to cultural heritage issues in investment arbitration. Such new landscape concerns factors including regulatory stability and development, public interest, and different paradigms of different regimes. These are considerable challenges faced by investors, governments, NGOs and other stakeholders. They will profoundly affect governance, regulation and the practice concerning investment and related areas.
This event will explore a number of crucial but under-explored issues, including the following ones:
How to conceptualise investment in international law through the legal framework?
How to address the fragmentation between international investment and environmental regimes and the dilemma where states face conflicting obligations?
How should regulatory stability be addressed in dispute settlement in the contexts such as renewable energy transition?
How to deal with interfacing and possible collision between international investment law and international cultural heritage law?
