The CJEU is scheduled to give judgment in the Achmea case on 6 March. This may at last provide an answer to the vexed question of the compatibility with EU law of the many intra-EU BITs resulting from the accessions of 2004, 2007 and 2013. Read with Advocate General Wathelet’s Opinion, the judgment will be of intense interest both to EU law specialists and to specialists in international investment law.
This seminar provides an early opportunity for expert analysis of the issues, from the investment law perspective by Dr Lorand Bartells of the University of Cambridge, and from the EU law perspective by Professor Panos Koutrakos of City University, with commentary by the Chair, Sir Alan Dashwood QC, in the light of his practical experience of the Micula litigation.
