Workshop: Customary International Law and its Interpretation in International Tax & Investment Law             

Source: International Law Reporter

February 10, 2019

 On February 20, 2019, a workshop on “Customary International Law and its Interpretation in International Tax & Investment Law” will be held at the University of Groningen. The program is here. Here’s the idea:

In international law, interpretation is ubiquitous and is the process through which the interpreter attempts to determine the true meaning of the rule that is being interpreted. Most cases brought before international courts and tribunals deal one way or another with questions of interpretation. This process has been codified in Articles 31-33 of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties (VCLT).

Customary international law (CIL), in turn, is one of the formal sources of international law creating binding rules of international law. Some of the most crucial rules of international law started and continue to exist as CIL. The issue with CIL, however, is that it is an unwritten source of international law. Its existence is determined inductively through examination of two elements, state practice and opinio juris (acceptance as law).

Whereas in the application of treaties the process of interpretation is one that always yields a solution, with respect to CIL these rules of interpretation have not been examined, despite the fact that it has been and remains the object of multiple studies and of application by almost all courts and tribunals. Evidently in the study of CIL there is a lacuna in understanding how CIL once it has been formed, continues to exist and is interpreted, and what is the nature and content of those interpretative rules.

In light of these developments and evolving views, this workshop aims to initiate a debate on the challenges and opportunities presented by CIL and its interpretation in two main fields, ie international tax law, and international investment law.

Frankfurt Investment Law Workshop 2019: ‘International Investment Law in the Age of Digitalization’             

Source: Ejil Talk

January 27, 2019

 For many years, the annual Frankfurt Investment Law Workshop has been a forum to discuss fundamental challenges to investment law. This year‘s workshop, held on 8 – 9 March 2019, addresses the challenges investor-state dispute settlement and substantive investment protection face in light of increasing digitalization. Key questions include: Can processing data be a protected investment? Which State is the host State of a digital investment without physical presence? What are the host State’s responsibilities towards investors facing digital threats, such as cyber-attacks? Do current investment protection standards leave enough regulatory space for States to regulate the digital transformation of their economies and societies?  Digitalization is also reshaping the settlement of investment disputes. How must proceedings be conducted in order to provide for sufficient cybersecurity? Are online-hearings an effective tool to enhance transparency and efficiency of proceedings? How do tribunals keep up with the challenge of having to analyze the authenticity and legal value of (potentially large amounts) of digital evidence? To which extent can technology help the advocate’s cause in convincing the tribunal? The program is available here. Attendance is free, but subject to registration. If you are interested in participating, please contact Sabine Schimpf, Merton Centre for European Integration and International Economic Order, University of Frankfurt by 23 February 2019.
