Treaty-based investor-state arbitrations have been on the rise, affecting a growing number of countries each year. Due to several features of investment arbitration, it can be exceedingly difficult for states to understand the strengths and weaknesses of claims or defenses, develop and implement their own litigation strategies, or internalize lessons from past decisions in order to avoid future disputes. Moreover, even when states win cases, defending the disputes can be costly, drawing officials’ attention away from important matters, generating millions of dollars in litigation expenses, and causing governments reputational harm.
This course addressed those challenges. Through an intensive week-long course, government officials involved in managing investment treaty disputes or negotiating investment treaties increased their knowledge of crucial procedural and substantive aspects of investment law. Sessions were taught by leading academics and practitioners and were tailored to uniquely address issues relevant to governments.
