28th Investment Treaty Forum Public Conference

On Friday, 12 May 2017, Cecily Rose participated in a conference held in London by the Investment Treaty Forum (British Institute of International and Comparative Law).

The 28th Investment Treaty Forum Public Conference concerned economic crime and international investment law, and brought together practitioners in the field of investor-State arbitration, as well as academics. Cecily participated in a panel on the evidentiary challenges raised by allegations of economic crimes in investor-state disputes. Drawing on her study of how arbitral tribunals have handled allegations of corruption, Cecily discussed when tribunals might draw adverse inferences, make use of circumstantial evidence, or shift the burden of proof, as well as the standard of proof that tribunals have used in evaluating such claims.
