“The Interaction of International Investment Law with Other Fields of Public International Law”

The Grotius Centre for International Legal Studies and the Institute of

Public Law have held their conference on:

The Interaction of International Investment Law with Other Fields of

Public International Law

Leiden Law School, 8 and 9 April 2011

Conference Theme

International investment law has undoubtedly become one of the most

dynamic fields of international law. However, with most attention focused on

investment protection standards, the interaction of international investment law

with other sub-fields of international law has remained largely uncharted. In

order to fill this gap, the conference intends to examine the linkage of

international investment law and other rules of international law – in

particular, the law on armed conflict, sustainable development law, human rights

law and trade law. The conference will also address the relationship between

international investment law and regional law, such as the law of the European

Union, and the special situation of resource-rich developing countries.

Main speakers

Meg Kinnear (ICSID Secretary-General) Markus Gehring (Cambridge

University) Friedl Weiss (Vienna University) Moshe Hirsch (Hebrew University

of Jerusalem) Peter-Tobias Stoll (Göttingen University) Mary Footer

(Nottingham University) and Nico Schrijver (Leiden University).
