24 Sept 2020: Professor Doug Jones AO to speak at IBA International Arbitration in Asia Pacific conference

4th Sep 2020

Professor Doug Jones AO will join a distinguished panel to discuss “A pandemic arbitration wave? The rise of investor-state arbitrations in the aftermath of the pandemic” as part of the IBA International Arbitration in Asia Pacific Virtual Conference presented by the IBA Arbitration Committee and the Asia Pacific Arbitration Group, supported by the IBA Asia Pacific Regional Forum.

The session, moderated by Sarah Grimmer, Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre, includes Toby Landau QC, Essex Court Chambers (Singapore), Judith Levine, Independent Arbitrator (Sydney), and Alvin Yeo SC, Wong Partnership (Singapore).

The panel will look at a number of questions including:

  • Can investment agreements be a powerful tool to recover or prevent loss resulting from COVID-19 related government emergency measures?
  • Should the emergency measures be shielded from the investor-state arbitration?
    What are the case scenarios/potential claims in the field of investor-state arbitrations? What are the possible state defences and arguments?
    What are the perspectives of stakeholders in Asia Pacific?
    More mediation within investor-state arbitrations in Asia Pacific?
    Will investor state arbitration survive the Covid-19 crisis? Can investor-state arbitration remain as a preferred mechanism for resolving investment disputes? What will dispute resolution mechanism for investor-state disputes look like in the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic?

Closing remarks from Chié Nakahara, partner, Nishimura & Asahi (Tokyo), will be followed by a networking session with chairs, speakers, and other participants.

Start time: 9am BST
