THE INTERNATIONAL LAW INSTITUTE (ILI) HOSTED A WEBINAR ON
“REFORM IN INVESTMENT ARBITRATION: NEW DEVELOPMENTS AT ICSID & UNCITRAL”

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 2022, 12:30 PM – 1:45 PM ET

 

 

 

 

International Law Institute hosted a 75-minute panel discussion by leading practitioners in the investment arbitration field on the recent developments in the reform at ICSID and before the UNCITRAL Working Group III (WG III). As announced by ICSID on January 20, ICSID submitted resolutions on the amended ICSID rules to the Administrative Council - ICSID’s governing body - for a vote of approval by March 21 with the new rules coming into effect on July 1, 2022.

UNCITRAL Working Group III is scheduled to meet the week of February 14 to engage in further discussions concerning an arbitrator code of conduct, and the proposed international investment court, among other issues. Our panel of guest speakers will provide an update on the status of these efforts and what they may mean for investor-state dispute resolution in the future. This will be followed by a discussion and a Q&A session with the attendees.
