The conference aims to present the effect of the ruling on jurisdiction in favour of the majority of Yukos shareholders v the Russian Federation in the EU-Russia energy relationship.

Dr. Scherer is going to review the current issues and the merits while speaking on the topic "The Yukos Case and the Legal Effect." If a ruling is obtained in favour of Yukos, will it be unenforceable in Russia? Could it be enforced outside Russia? Could the Russian state rely on sovereign immunity to discourage the bringing of any effective legal claims? What are the effects of the decision of the federation of Russia to withdraw from provisional application of the ECT on October 19, 2009?
