Thirty Seventh ITF Public Conference: Overlapping Treaty Regimes in International Investment Law


As the number of international law norms increases, so does its fragmentation. Cases in which the same issue is governed by overlapping and sometimes conflicting treaty regimes become increasingly common. How do investors and State reconcile their rights and obligations under investment, EU, environmental, human rights, anti-corruption, trade, and other treaty regimes? Are tribunals obliged to take into accounts rights and obligations of parties to investor-State disputes even if none of the parties pleads it? How to reconcile conflicting treaty rules taking into account the legitimate expectations of investors and the rights of States to regulate?

These and other questions will be addressed during a one-day conference hosted by Investment Treaty Forum, which will take place in the hybrid format (in-person and online) at the British Institute of International and Comparative Law.
