The work of IMI’s investor-state taskforce has continued to make in-roads, collaborating with the International Energy Charter, UNCITRAL, and ICSID. Most recently, the Energy Charter’s Model Instrument, supported by IMI, was recognised at the 2019 Financial Times Innovative Lawyer Awards:
The Taskforce has additionally supported new mediation rules for both UNCITRAL and ICSID, and a guide to accompany the rules for UNCITRAL.
Taskforce Chair, Mark Appel, has recently produced on article on the Singapore Convention, which addresses the rationale for and highlights of the Convention, as well as the risks and benefits to commercial interests and public entities, and possible application of the Convention for investor-state relations.
Congratulations to the Investor-State Taskforce on their fantastic work to date!
