Call for papers for a conference entitled "Is a Multilateral Investment Treaty Needed?
which will take place at the World Trade Institute in
Bern, Switzerland on 19 June 2017.
Here is a short description of the conference: The World Trade Institute
(WTI) of the University of Bern invites the submission of papers and abstracts
for a conference entitled "Is a Multilateral Investment Treaty Needed?
Attempts at crafting a multilateral agreement on investment have proven
repeatedly contentious. The question of whether a multilateral investment
agreement is needed, desirable or politically feasible is thus of considerable
policy salience. Even if one believes that a strong case can yet be made in
favour of such an agreement whether on substantive grounds or for the needed
settlement of investment disputes, the question remains what kind of agreement
should be proposed. This call for papers and ensuing conference plans to debate
the many important questions emerging from the negotiation of a possible
multilateral framework agreement on investment. Abstract Submission Deadline:
April 1, 2017. Submission of a Draft Paper: June 15, 2017.
