Round up of activities in January and February
Despite or because of the covid 19 pandemic, I have been very busy in the past two months.
In January I kicked off with the EFILA Annual Conference, which was spread over two afternoons with stellar panels and Gary Born as a keynote speaker. Due to the fact that it was held online, we attracted an unprecedented number of attendees from around the world.
The keynote and the panels have been recorded and can be watch here: Annual Conference 2021 – EFILA – EU Investment Law and Arbitration
Later that month I participated in webinar organized by HCLA regarding Belt and Road initiative. I spoke about the EU’s geopolitical approach to it.
In February, I spoke at a webinar organized by KC Legal on how to obtain optimal investment protection through asset structuring.
Also, in February, I spoke at the first Milan Arbitration Week on two panels. The first one on the outstanding issues of incompatibility between international investment law and EU law, while the second one focused on the selection of arbitrators.
In addition, I wrote several blogposts for Borderlex on a number of issues:
As for the coming weeks, I am very much looking forward to the publication of the book International Arbitration and EU law which has been co-edited by José Mata Dona and myself.
Also, we the Call for Papers and Essay Competition for the European Investment Law and Arbitration Review is currently running, see here:
Finally, in March, I will teach two classes in International Investment Law at the Erasmus University Rotterdam.
