Jones Day
21 Tudor Street

The last few years have seen several significant developments in the area of investment arbitration disputes involving the CIS states and pertaining to noteworthy and sometimes intriguing jurisdictional and substantive law issues. Jones Day, together with the Russia and CIS Arbitration Network and the CIS Arbitration Forum, is pleased to invite you to our programme, "Hot Topics in Investment Arbitration Disputes Involving CIS States".

The event will be held in the format of a roundtable debate led by a distinguished panel of speakers, who will address some of the most challenging issues affecting the law and practice of international arbitration, including:

  • Provisional application of the Energy Charter Treaty: How long is a piece of string?
  • The powers of international tribunals: Can the tribunals review criminal investigations and judgements of domestic courts? Where is the borderline between a tribunal's power and a state's sovereignty?
