Europe as an Investment Treaty Actor
The next ITF conference "Europe as an Investment Treaty Actor" will take place in Stockholm on 12 June and will focus on the role of the European Commission in shaping the EU’s investment treaties and the substance of the deals which Europe is negotiating.
The conference will include a keynote dialogue among members of the Swedish and European Parliament, as well as panels examining the role of the European Union as an investment treaty actor.
Among the central questions raised by this meeting is whether the investment chapters in Europe's treaties with Canada, Singapore and the United States (TTIP) are likely to be good for European economic growth or whether they are more likely to expose Europe and its Member States to a future of litigation from foreign investors.
The Investment Treaty Forum (ITF) was founded in 2004 with the aim of providing a global centre for serious high level debate in the field of international investment law.
The next ITF conference is organized by the British Institute of International and Comparative Law (BIICL) in association with the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce (SCC), Mannheimer Swartling and Uppsala University.
Time and date: 12 June, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Place: Mannheimer Swartling, Norrlandsgatan 21, Stockholm.
