Call for papers: TDM Special Edition on Latin America
13 May 2009
Second Investment Arbitration Forum
"Investment Arbitration in a Changing World"
Instituto de Investigaciones JurÝdicas, UNAM,
Mexico, D.F., September 3-4, 2009
Arbitration continues to grow in Latin America and the region has become one of the important users of the system. However, in some places of Latin America the current foreign investment protection regime and established principles of international arbitration have been questioned (e.g. Venezuela, Ecuador and Bolivia).
In the light of the multi - faceted aspects of dispute resolution in the region, Transnational Dispute Management (TDM) has decided to prepare a special edition on Latin America. Dr. Herfried W÷ss will act as special editor, and we invite you to contribute articles.
Your article may refer to a wide range of Latin America dispute related topics, such as commercial and investment arbitration, international law, international commercial law, international economic law, intellectual property, investment disputes, international litigation, international human rights, international environmental law, WTO, NAFTA, Andean Community, MERCOSUR, FTAs, the Energy Charter Treaty, and International Investment Agreements (IIAs) in general, provided they have a relationship to the region.
Contributions should be sent to Dr. Herfried W÷ss at end of October 2009.
Independently from the above, please be informed that the Second Investment Arbitration Forum, " Investment Arbitration in a Changing World", will take place at the Instituto de Investigaciones JurÝdicas of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) on September 3 and 4, 2009. Key note speakers fluent in Spanish are still being welcome.
