Call for Papers for an investment conference: Is a Multilateral Investment Treaty Needed?
The World Trade Institute (WTI) of the University of Bern invites the submission of papers and abstracts for a conference entitled 'Is a Multilateral Investment Treaty Needed?'.
The conference takes place on 19 June 2017.
The World Trade Institute (WTI) of the University of Bern invites the submission of papers and abstracts for a conference entitled "Is a Multilateral Investment Treaty Needed? Attempts at crafting a multilateral agreement on investment have proven repeatedly contentious. The question of whether a multilateral investment agreement is needed, desirable or politically feasible is thus of considerable policy salience. Even if one believes that a strong case can yet be made in favour of such an agreement whether on substantive grounds or for the needed settlement of investment disputes, the question remains what kind of agreement should be proposed. This call for papers and ensuing conference plans to debate the many important questions emerging from the negotiation of a possible multilateral framework agreement on investment. Abstract Submission Deadline: April 1, 2017. Submission of a Draft Paper: June 15, 2017
See the attached call for submissions.
