Officials from developing country governments and regional organizations need to access information on developments in international investment law and policy to negotiate better treaties and contracts and to prepare for and manage investment disputes.

This is why IISD is hosting a webinar series on investment law and policy for negotiators and officials involved in investment disputes. Experts, academics and practitioners who specialize in international investment law and policy will discuss a range of issues arising in investment negotiations and dispute settlement. The webinars will cover themes such as ongoing negotiation or reform processes at the international and regional levels, the evolution of substantive standards in international investment law, the development of criteria for investment that advances sustainable development, innovative approaches to investment-related dispute settlement processes, and more.

Various themes will be highlighted throughout the series, including substantive standards in international investment law, foreign direct investment, innovative approaches and alternative dispute settlement processes, specific investment law cases and more.

The second webinar in the series, Investment Facilitation – Making sense of concepts, discussions and processes, takes place Tuesday, July 10, at 15:00 CEST. 

The first webinar in the series, UNCITRAL Process on ISDS Reform: What to expect at the upcoming working group meeting in New York, took place Tuesday, April 17, 2018, at 15:00 CEST. You can watch a recording of the webinar below.
