10 años de negociaciones. 7 reuniones de alto nivel entre la UE y Canadá. 1.598 páginas. 2 bloqueos resueltos con pactos maratonianos. La aprobación del Parlamento Europeo por dos tercios de la euro-cámara. Y aún queda la ratificación de los 28 parlamentos europeos.

Brics dispute resolution mechanism: Challenges ahead, but promises much

BRICS2016 | Octubre 25
The idea behind a Brics-centric dispute resolution mechanism stems from challenges faced frequently by developing countries in existing international arbitration frameworks. Arguably, the current international framework, particularly in investment treaty arbitrations, is extremely unfavourable for developing countries. There is inequitable representation of arbitrators from developing countries on such panels, resulting in a level of obliviousness regarding the socio-economic conditions prevailing in developing nations. This often leads to adverse economic ramifications of arbitral awards for these countries.

Resultado de imagen de TTIP2016 | Septiembre 14
I have been at endless meetings over the years when lawyers from developing countries have protested about the impact of globalisation on their legal professions, since UK and American lawyers in particular have swamped the market for top-class commercial deals, forcing out the local firms, leaving them unable to cope with slick competition.It is timely to contemplate what the retreat from globalisation might mean for our profession.
