The EFILA Annual Conference 2016 entitled “Investment arbitration 2.0?” took place on 5 February 2016 at La Maison du Barreau in Paris.

The Conference brought together about 100 world-class dispute resolution practitioners and prominent arbitration experts and discussed the challenges and opportunities of investment arbitration, including the new features of investment protection chapters included in recently concluded or currently negotiated EU International Investment Agreements, like CETA. In particular, the speakers discussed the pros and cons of international arbitration, the rule of law, including complex issues such as transparency, right to regulate, protection of property rights and democratic deficits.
