Christian Tams sends along the following announcement.

Frankfurt Investment Law Workshop 2012 – Preferential Trade and Investment Agreements: A New Ordering Paradigm for International Investment Relations? (16-17 March 2012)

For a couple of years, the Frankfurt Investment Law Workshop has been a forum to discuss conceptual issues of international investment law. Following previous events assessing the relationship between Investment Law and General International Law: From Clinical Isolation to Systemic Integration? (see here) and International Investment Law and Its Others (forthcoming 2012), this year’s workshop will explore the growing network of preferential trade and investment agreements (PTIAs) and assess their impact on ordering international investment relations. It will be held in Frankfurt/Main on 16-17 March 2012, immediately following the Frankfurt Investment Arbitration Moot.

The workshop will open with a keynote speech by Professor Raúl Emilio Vinuesa. This is to be followed by panels addressing the interaction between PTIAs and traditional BITs; the impact of PTIAs on the Trade/Investment divide; and the role of regionalism and multilateralism in international investment law.

The event is designed to be a forum for discussion and much room is allocated to debate. Anyone interested in participating should contact Mrs. Sabine Schimpf, Merton Centre for European Integration and International Economic Order, University of Frankfurt, RuW, Grüneburgplatz 1, 60323 Frankfurt am Main, Germany (S.Schimpf {at} jur.uni-frankfurt(.)de) by 28 February 2012.
