Hosted by the Centre for International Law, at the National University of Singapore, this webinar will take place on 14 May 2020 at 4pm, Singapore time, and will be moderated by Loretta Malintoppi.
States are taking a wide range of measures in response to the COVID-19 crisis. In some cases, states are restricting the inflow of foreign investment to protect domestic enterprises. More broadly, social distancing and lockdown measures, as well as compensation measures for businesses, have significant economic impacts on existing domestic and foreign investors. It seems almost inevitable that COVID-19 related measures will give rise to investor claims under investment agreements (whether in the aftermath or during the current crisis). The panel for this webinar, which Loretta will moderate, will to explore the implications for investment law and the settlement of investment disputes of measures taken by states in response to the COVID-19 crisis.
