Opinion 2/15 is already causing quite a stir in legal academia. While some take an EU law perspective, others look at it from the perspective of investment law or public international law. In this short post I will not focus on purely legal issues. Instead, I will look at the Opinion’s effects on the EU’s investment policy and propose a change in the Commission’s approach to the negotiation of international economic agreements.

The 25th and 26th of August marked an important event in PluriCourts’ history, the conference on ‘Adjudicating International Trade and Investment Disputes: Between Isolation and Interaction’. As the title suggests, the main topic of the conference was the interplay between the international trade and investment regimes, mainly the question of convergence and divergence and whether this cross‑fertilization is beneficial or should be treated with caution.
