We are pleased to announce the event “The EU and investment arbitration under the Energy Charter Treaty” a conference organised by the Centre of European and International Legal Affairs (CEILA) and supported by the Energy Charter Secretariat. The event will take place in London on the 11th & 12th of February, hosted in the Queen Mary University of London premises.

This conference moves away from the BITs discussion and aims to bring legal experts, practitioners and policy makers to discuss the interaction of EU law with investment arbitration under the Energy Charter Treaty.  The objective is to set out and assess the legal and practical arrangements, which govern the involvement of the European Union (EU) and its Member States in investment arbitration under the Energy Charter Treaty (ECT). It aims to provide a comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of the topic and explore the broader implications of the application of the investment provisions of the ECT on i) the integrity of EU law and ii) international investment law and, in light of the above, iii) assess the added value of the ECT for energy investments.

Gloria Alvarez, Queen Mary Research Fellow and Kluwer Blog Associate Editor, will be participating as special rapporteur for this event. Her reports will be shared here for all our Kluwer Arbitration Blog readers.
