Multilateral Instrument on ISDS Reform Webinar

The UNCITRAL Secretariat and the ISDS Academic Forum organized a webinar on the topic of a multilateral instrument on ISDS reform on 23 April 2020.

Topics for discussion included the possible architecture of a multilateral instrument that would aim at providing the framework for the implementation of various reform options: the instrument could include specific provisions and annexes, addressing various reform options; it can also foresee the preparation of protocols for addressing possible developments; a further possibility would be for the instrument to also set-up a multilateral institution for investment dispute settlement that would allow States to choose among different modes of dispute settlement administered by the institution (reformed investor-State arbitration, inter-State arbitration, use of a multilateral standing mechanism, domestic remedies).
