Webinar on Termination and Renegotiation of Investment Treaties
This webinar was held on Thursday March 26 at 3 PM CET / 10 AM EST. It involved a discussion on the termination and renegotiation of investment treaties, including a presentation of our 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.
The event is part of our series of Webinars in Investment Law and Policy. Our featured speakers included 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, served as the webinar moderator. It also involved a dedicated Q&A session.
