Stakeholder Session on UNCITRAL ISDS Reform Process

Share This

The United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) is currently engaged in a process to consider reform of investor-state arbitration (also known as investor-state dispute settlement or ISDS). ISDS is also one of the controversial issues being addressed in the NAFTA renegotiations, and driving the EU-led initiative to create a multilateral court for investment claims.

Alongside the UNCITRAL negotiations, which are taking place April 23-27, 2018, in New York, the International Institute for Sustainable Development, the Columbia Center on Sustainable Investment and the International Institute for Environment and Development are organizing a session for interested members of the public (e.g., civil society, academia, practitioners) to present their views on the issues being discussed at UNCITRAL, namely: the problems with ISDS, options for reform, and suggested directions for UNCITRAL.
