The European Commission today launched a public consultation to gather stakeholders’ views on possible options for multilateral reform of the way investment disputes are resolved, including the possible establishment of a permanent Multilateral Investment Court.
The idea of multilaterally reforming investment dispute settlement first emerged in the context of the 2014 public consultation on investment protection, where a number of stakeholders pointed to the idea that the reform of investment dispute resolution would be best undertaken multilaterally rather than through bilateral reforms.
The Commission also put forward the idea in its 2015 Concept Paper on ‘Investment in TTIP – the path beyond’ and it has been largely supported by the European Parliament and Member States.
