The role and importance of the UN Convention on transparency for investor-state dispute settlement

Dr Nikolaos Theodorakis
(Lecturer and Fellow, University of Oxford; IALS Visiting Fellow)

The new UN Convention on transparency for investor-state dispute settlement makes it easier to apply the UN's transparency rules to investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS) carried out under existing investment treaties. Transparency and openness is key to ensure both a fair process and eliminate risks of corruption. The seminar will discuss the role and importance of the convention and will draw on the hypothesis of what it can change in the years to come.
