On 29 January 2019, CIL participated in the 73rd meeting of the ASEAN Coordinating Committee on Investment (CCI) held in Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei Darussalam. The meeting was attended by Research Associate Professor (CIL) N Jansen Calamita, Head of CIL’s Investment Law and Policy Programme, and CIL Visiting Research Consultant Dr Charalampos Giannakopoulos.

The meeting was convened to discuss, among others, proposals being put forward internationally on the topic of investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS) reform. Research Assoc Prof Calamita delivered a presentation, addressing the drivers for ISDS reform, available reform options, and modalities through which different reform options may be implemented.

CIL’s participation in the work of the ASEAN CCI is part of the Centre’s broader engagement with the topic of appellate mechanisms and standing tribunals in the settlement of investor-state disputes.
