1. Frankfurt Investment Law Workshop: ICSID at 50: Investment Arbitration as a Motor of General International Law? For many years, the Frankfurt Investment Law Workshop – jointly organized by Rainer Hofmann (Frankfurt), Stephan W. Schill (Amsterdam), and Christian J. Tams (Glasgow) – has been a forum for the discussion of foundational issues of international investment law. This next workshop will run from 11-12 March 2016 and asks whether and to what extent international investment law and investor-State arbitration are ‘motors of general international law’? Contributions to this workshop focus on three areas in which investment law and arbitration might be seen as a motor of legal development: the law of dispute settlement, the law of treaties, and state responsibility. The program is available here; for edited collections that have grown out of earlier Frankfurt Investment Law Workshops see herehere and here. If you are interested in participating, please contact Sabine Schimpf, Merton Centre for European Integration and International Economic Order, University of Frankfurt at S.Schimpf {at} jur.uni-frankfurt(.)de by 28 February 2016.
