Max Planck Lecture Series on Sovereign Debt: “Investment Arbitration as a means of Resolving Sovereign Debt Dispute”

As part of its Lecture Series on Sovereign Debt, the Max Planck Institute Luxembourg is organising a lecture on the topic “Investment Arbitration as a means of Resolving Sovereign Debt Dispute” on Wednesday, 9 November.

In the absence of formal mechanism for sovereign debt restructuring, sovereign creditors are increasingly turning to investment arbitration to resolve sovereign debt disputes. Whether investment arbitration is an appropriate forum to resolve sovereign debt disputes will, inter alia, be addressed in the session. The lecture will also explore the overall role of investment arbitration in sovereign debt crises.

The lecture is the fourth in a series of six Max Planck lectures supported through the FNR’s RESCOM: Scientific Events programme.

Discussant: Prof. Rodrigo Olivares-Caminal (Queen Mary University of London)
