09 Nov Events and Announcements: November 9, 2014
Call for Papers
- TDM will be publishing a Special Issue on the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement between the European Union and Canada (CETA) and is hereby inviting contributions dealing with the Agreement and the issues raised by any of its chapters. Of particular interest in the investment chapter are clarifications brought to key substantive provisions such as fair and equitable treatment; the definition of investment, which refers to “income generating assets” in the sense used by economists; the fair and equitable standard, including manifest arbitrariness, targeted discrimination on manifestly wrongful grounds and abusive treatment of investors, and its interpretation by the contracting Parties; the definition of acts de jure imperii, and CETA’s detailed language on what constitutes indirect expropriation. Proposals or papers should be submitted directly to the co-editors – Herfried Wöss, Fabien Gélinas, Andrea Bjorklund, and John Gaffney – by January 15, 2015 – contact details on the TDM website.
