New research from PluriCourts reveals a tight network of actors shifting between the roles of lawyer and arbitrator in investment treaty arbitration.
International investment law and arbitration is the subject of growing empirical inquiry. Drawing on a wide range of disciplines and different qualitative, quantitative and computational methods, the research has shed light on burning public policy debates, puzzles in actor behavior, and trends in institutional and legal developments.
The conference is hosted by LEGINVEST, a Research Council of Norway-financed project, Pluricourts Centre of Excellence, Faculty of Law, University of Oslo in collaboration with iCourts and the German Development Institute.
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.
