Overview

In this interview, Anna Joubin-Bret, Secretary of UNCITRAL, will give an update on the key pending proposals for reform of international commercial (Working Group II) and investor-state (Working Group III) dispute resolution.

We will discuss the status of some of the most important reform options, including the proposal to create multilateral instruments on ISDS reform, the establishment of an advisory center, the drafting of a Code of Conduct for Adjudicators in ISDS and draft provisions for third-party funding.
