CIL Investment Treaty Governmental Workshop

CIL Investment Treaty Governmental Workshop


This is a By-Invitation-Only event.

Date: 13 – 14 September 2017

Venue: NUS Centre for International Law

About the Workshop

The Centre for International Law (CIL) is launching a new research project on the relationship between international investment agreements (IIAs) and national governance. Among the issues addressed by this research are:

  • the level of awareness about investment treaty obligations at various levels of government and processes for the diffusion of knowledge within government;
  • state practices for internalizing IIA obligations in regulatory decision-making and the role of intergovernmental legal advice;
  • processes adopted by states for the avoidance and management of foreign investment-related disputes; and
  • methods and procedures adopted by states for addressing disputes under IIAs once they have become formalized through the invocation of treaty-based dispute settlement procedures.

This workshop brings together government officials from different states to begin a dialogue about experiences and practices with these agreements.
