Arbitration agreements and awards as investment: how far does the protection of international law go?

 

The second panel will cover issues such as whether an arbitral award or the right to arbitrate itself are protected assets under investment treaties, and under what circumstances can the violation of the New York Convention amount to a violation of investment protection standards. The panel will also explore the chances of success of such claims, and discuss whether the number of similar claims can be expected to rise given the continuously growing interference of EU law in the field of international arbitration.
