- For many years, the Frankfurt Investment Law Workshop – jointly organized by Rainer Hofmann (University of Frankfurt), Stephan Schill (Max Planck Institute Heidelberg), and Christian J.

The next workshop, to be held March 13-14, 2015, will explore the role of history in the interpretation and application of international investment law. It will cover a wide range of issues, from debates about investment law’s imperial origins to the drafting history of the World Bank’s ICSID Convention. The program is available here. As in previous years, the workshop will bring together academics and practitioners and provide them with a forum for open and frank exchanges.
