Brainstorming Session on Preventing Investment Disputes

1 April 2019, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM, United Nations Headquarters (side-event during the Spring meeting of UNCITRAL WG III), New York, New York

In 2018, the Energy Charter Secretariat (ECS) in cooperation with governmental officials and international institutions (such as ICSID, World Bank, IMI) worked on practical issues to facilitate a framework for managing investment disputes. This work resulted in the Model Instrument on Management of Investment Disputes.

To complement such Model Instrument, the Secretariat will focus during 2019 on tools for prevention of investment disputes.

The interactive discussion aims at identifying synergies among different International Organisations working on prevention of investment disputes, as well as gaps that government officials consider that still need to be addressed.
