Investment Treaty Law and Arbitration Seminar Series

July 9, 2016

This seminar series, organized by Can Yeğinsu, aimed to introduce students to investment treaty law and investment treaty arbitration. As an area of law and practice, investment treaty arbitration remains a relatively new and dynamic area that involves a mix of public international law, international commercial arbitration, and public law principles. The seminars covered the theoretical and policy foundations of investment treaty law and dispute resolution by arbitration; the rules and institutions that govern the resolution of investment treaty disputes; the substantive protections applicable to the investor-state relationship and defenses available to states; and the relationship between investment treaty law and other areas of international law, public law, and human rights law.
