Investment Arbitration and Climate Change

Investment Arbitration and Climate Change

Speaking Engagement

Clara Reichenbach will focus on the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for climate change-related counterclaims in this webinar hosted by Wolters Kluwer.

What happens when a state’s effort to tackle climate change has a negative impact on foreign investors? Legislative and regulatory measures designed to meet state obligations under international climate law have already triggered claims under international investment law, and more such claims are to be expected. In many ways, these are cases of first impression, and existing jurisprudence may fall short on guidance for the lawyers and arbitrators involved.

In this webinar, contributors to the recently published volume Investment Arbitration and Climate Change will discuss procedural and substantive aspects of climate-related investment disputes, including the roles of science and counterclaims, the valuation of fossil assets in light of global decarbonization, and the balance between the state’s right to regulate and the investor’s legitimate expectations of regulatory stability.
