CIArb NAB presents a webinar, “Potential Alternatives to Arbitration in ISDS”, on Wednesday, September 22, 2021 @ 11:00 a.m. EDT.
The investor-State dispute settlement (ISDS) system provides a mechanism, based on international arbitration, to resolve disputes between foreign investors and States. Investor-State disputes are increasing, and damage awards are often significant, placing the ISDS system under scrutiny.
This webinar, the last in a three-part series on UNCITRAL Working Group III- Reform or Replace the Investor-State Dispute Settlement System? explores alternatives to arbitration in ISDS.
Moderated by Dr. Alan Anderson, panelists Dr. Herman Verbist - Attorney, Everest Law (Ghent/Brussels); Ms. Kinda Mohamadieh - Legal Advisor and Senior Researcher, Third World Network in Geneva, and Dr. Margie-Lys Jaime - Professor, University of Panama (Panama) will provide insights into possible alternative methods for resolving ISDS disputes.
