Investment-Related Dispute Settlement: Reflections on a new beginning
If investment-related dispute settlement mechanisms at the international level were to be built anew, what should they look like? That question was the focus of an interactive expert meeting hosted by IISD, on October 17 and 18, 2014, in Montreux, Switzerland.
The meeting gathered a diverse group of over 20 experts, including academics, government officials and representatives of intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations. The group’s expertise ranged from diplomacy, economics and law, to the fields of investment, human rights and trade. The experts agreed that the status quo of international investment-related dispute settlement was unsatisfactory, and there was much room for reform and new thinking. At the meeting, they explored alternative models for settling investment disputes at the international level to supplement or replace existing mechanisms.
