Integrating Investor Obligations and Corporate Accountability Provisions in Trade and Investment Agreements
On January 11 and 12, 2018, IISD and FES co-organized an expert meeting in Versoix, Switzerland, on the topic of Integrating Investor Obligations and Corporate Accountability Provisions in Trade and Investment Agreements.
A diverse group of 30 experts assembled, with expertise ranging from diplomacy, economics, law and environment to the fields of investment, human rights and trade. Their discussions focused on finding a pathway to articulating and incorporating investor obligations in international economic agreements, specifically international investment agreements and international economic partnership or trade agreements with investment chapters. This report presents some of the main points that emerged from those discussions.
