On Friday 1 June 2018 Graham Coop will chair a panel on “Brexit and the Energy Charter Treaty” at a conference organised in Brussels, Belgium by the Association for International Arbitration (AIA) on “The Future of Investment Arbitration in Europe”. The event will take place at the Conference Hall of Press Club Brussels Europe.
The conference will provide a comprehensive overview of issues pertinent to investment arbitration, reflections on challenges posed by cultural crossroads and insight into future developments.
Graham’s panel will consider the potential effect of Brexit on the Energy Charter Treaty, including how it will affect the ECT’s legal status, what will happen to claims arising before Brexit and whether investors could sue the UK, or the EU, on the basis of Brexit per se.
