Developments in ISDS: The Roaring 20s?

Dr. Kabir Duggal, Lecturer-in-Law at Columbia University, will be the fifth speaker of the Young ITA Mentorship Program – Speaker Series. Dr. Duggal will discuss recent developments in the investor state dispute settlement system.

In recent years, the investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS) has faced intense criticism from political and social society actors. This has prompted a wide-ranging discussion concerning potential reforms to the ISDS system.

In this talk, Dr. Duggal will provide an overview of what is happening in the ISDS system, including recent efforts to “judicialize” the system and contain the costs faced by sovereigns. He will also talk about the disruptive effects of technology on the ISDS system. Finally, he will discuss recent initiatives aimed at fostering greater diversity in the international arbitration community.
