Fifth Annual Investment Treaty Arbitration Conference

Renaissance Mayflower Hotel

Czech Yearbook of Internatiional Law® togeher with Czech (& Central European) Yearbook of Arbitration® would like to invite you to the Fifth Annual Investment Treaty Arbitration Conference, which will take place in Washington D.C., on 5th April 2011. 

The main topic of the event is the prospective Future of the ICSID:

The International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), located in Washington, DC, is the leading international arbitration institution devoted to investor-State dispute settlement.  In over forty years of operation, ICSID has been at the forefront of new developments in this fascinating and growing field of international law and dispute resolution.  ICSID, like all international institutions, has been buffeted by the winds of change, and in particular by the exponential growth of international foreign direct investment.  Although the past ten years has witnessed significant growth and developments in ICSID arbitration, some of the fundamental issues facing arbitrators, practitioners and academics continue to be the topic of heated debate.  The future of ICSID, including its essential place in global economic development and its support for rule of law, is the topic of our fifth annual conference.

This conference continues our tradition of focusing on four topical and pressing issues – by establishing a dialogue between some of the brightest new stars in the field and some of its most seasoned practitioners.  Eight up-and-comers are preparing papers on four of the most controversial and important issues in international investment law today.  On the 5 April 2011, our young authors will pair up to defend their positions before a panel of arbitrators, arbitration specialists and experts in international investment law.  The discussion and debate that will follow is sure to be of tremendous value to the international business lawyer, litigation specialist or trade and investment law policy expert.
