Webinar on Termination and Renegotiation of Investment Treaties
This webinar, scheduled for Thursday March 26 at 3 PM CET / 10 AM EST, will be devoted to a discussion on the termination and renegotiation of investment treaties, including a presentation of our upcoming paper from our Best Practices Series, entitled Terminating a Bilateral Investment Treaty.
This paper situates the growing trend of bilateral investment treaty (BIT) termination and renegotiation in the context of UNCTAD’s Phase II of International Investment Agreement (IIA) Reform, examining recent developments in this area. It undertakes a detailed examination of recent state practice in BIT terminations and related drafting, and presents options and recommendations for states that wish to use termination and renegotiation to deal with their stock of older BITs.
Our featured speakers include Sarah Brewin and Suzy Nikièma from IISD and Hamed El Kady from the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD). Nathalie Bernasconi-Osterwalder, IISD Senior Director, Economic Law and Policy, will be serving as the webinar moderator.
After the presentations, we will hold a dedicated Q&A session.
Registration can be completed on the Zoom platform. The webinar video will be posted on the IISD YouTube channel shortly following the event.
