We are pleased to announce that the Faculty of Law, University of the West Indies, St. Augustine Campus, Trinidad and Tobago,

Brunswick European Law School of Ostfalia University, Germany and

Coventry Law School, UK

will be hosting the first EU-CARICOM LAW CONFERENCE 2018 – Present and Future Challenges from September 26th-27th, 2018 at the University Inn and Conference Centre, The University of the West Indies, St. Augustine, Trinidad and Tobago, W.I.

With this announcement we would like to encourage the broadest participation of all interested parties. This conference aims at examining the existing trade and development partnership between CARICOM and the EU as well as outlining several ways on how to proceed in the future. Also, the role and impact of differing legal principles on this partnership will be discussed in order to promote and enhance trade, investment and sustainable development.

Pressing questions of how to manage the existing trade and development partnership between CARICOM and the EU will be discussed. How can differing legal principles provide a framework in order to promote and enhance trade, investment and sustainable development? How can the EU policy: Trade for all be implemented? Is Brexit likely to have an impact and if so, in which ways? The 2018 EU-CARICOM conference will explore the different options of increasing interaction as well as critically analyze the potential threats and opportunities this interaction creates. For this, we are bringing together academics and practitioners from more than three different countries in order to provide them with a forum for an open and fruitful exchange.

Thus, papers are invited in the following areas:

  • Trade and Development
  • Investment and Environment
  • EU Policy: Trade for all and its implementation
  • United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
  • Corporate Social Responsibility
  • Impact of Brexit
  • Reparations and other open questions due to colonialism.

A publication of the submitted papers is intended after the conference. For further information please see the attached document.

9.-10. März 2018 International Investment Law and Constitutional Law – Frankfurt Investment Law Workshop 2018 –

Goethe University Frankfurt am Main, Germany
Campus Westend, Theodor-W.-Adorno-Platz 4, Frankfurt, Lecture Hall HZ 14
9 and 10 March 2018
International investment law and constitutional law have, for a long time, kept maximum
distance to each other. Unlike with respect to other areas of international law, constitutional
courts and constitutional law scholars, in most jurisdictions, largely ignored international
investment law and its constitutional law implications. Similarly, international investment law
and investor-state dispute settlement as a whole did not pay much heed to constitutional law
and constitutional legal analysis. This mutual disciplinary ignorance is coming under increased
pressure though as constitutional courts around the world, including the German Federal
Constitutional Court, the French Conseil Constitutionnel and the Court of Justice of the
European Union, are being called to address the constitutional limits of international
investment law and investment dispute settlement. Similarly, investment tribunals
increasingly face constitutional law arguments, and investment law scholarship promotes the
use of constitutional legal analysis to step up to the challenges the field is facing as an
instrument of global governance. The 2018 Frankfurt Investment Law Workshop will explore
the different facets of the increasing interaction between international investment law and
constitutional law and critically analyze the opportunities and challenges this interaction
creates.
