What to Do about Corruption Allegations? Debating Options for Investment Law

Tuesday, February 19, 2019
from 4.45 pm to 9 pm

 

Overview

Corruption continues to cast a shadow over investment law. When allegations of corruption arise in an investment dispute, the tribunal faces the difficult task of deciding whether to penalize the responsible party. It must assess the often-limited evidence of corruption and then craft an appropriate remedy for any positive finding. The legal questions this raises remain highly contested. This evening conference will advance the debate, bringing together academic and non-academic perspectives, to focus on proof of corruption and then on the proper response when corruption is found.

       The panel discussions will be followed by a reception.
