Human Rights and Investment Arbitration

December 4, 2020 At 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EST

The notion that investment arbitration and human rights should be treated separately as two different, self-contained systems is being challenged constantly by international instruments and international awards in various forums. Our panel will discuss the following: 

      • The application of human rights standards by tribunals in several arbitration cases and their effect in the ISDS system; 
      • New generation of IIAs that encourage, as a matter of soft law, incorporation of corporate social responsibility standards within the policies of the multinational enterprises, and impose human rights obligations upon foreign investors; 
      • How human rights as applied to investment arbitration may develop in the coming years; and
      • What may be the jurisdictional and substantive limitations to consider human rights violations in an investment arbitration.
