Key Issues

The symposium will bring together academics, governments, practitioners, investors, representatives from international organizations and non-governmental entities from around the world to discuss:

  • International Investment Agreements (IIAs); and

  • Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)

The joint symposium will be a unique opportunity to generate ideas and explore good practices for preventing, managing and resolving investment treaty conflict in order to facilitate investment and create sustainable dispute resolution systems.

It will consider a broad range of ADR-related issues ranging from dispute prevention, to avoiding dispute escalation, to considering alternatives to investment treaty arbitration.

The joint symposium will provide an opportunity to engage in networking, brainstorming and collaboration on investment dispute resolution and ADR and generate a set of good practices for the efficient prevention and management of investment treaty conflict.
