PluriCourts, together with the Climate Change Specialist Group of the IUCN World Commission on Environmental Law and the Environmental Law Program at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, William S. Richardson School of Law, have the pleasure of inviting you to an expert round table on “The Role of International Courts in Protecting Environmental Commons”.
The project's primary objective is to determine the relative importance of investment treaty arbitration (ITA) for the design of international investment agreements (IIAs) and the relative importance of (re)design of IIAs for ITA. Secondary objectives of the project are to:
1) Establish a general applicability database mapping the content of IIAs,
2) Propose ways to enhance synergies between international investment law and policies to protect the environment, promote human rights, and facilitate sustainable development in poor countries, and
3) Contribute to the general debate concerning the legitimacy of international courts with a comprehensive case study and a new analytical framework for assessing the relationship between the activities of courts and treaty design.
The project started in September 2018 and ends in August 2022.
