Campus: Brussels Humanities, Sciences & Engineering campus
L&C Talk


This presentation will consider the application of international investment law to investments located in disputed maritime zones based on a case study of the Falkland Islands (Malvinas). In this hypothetical scenario, a foreign company has obtained a license from either the UK or Argentina to explore and/or exploit hydrocarbons in the maritime zones surrounding the contested islands. In exploring this theme, the presenter will consider inter alia the territorial scope of bilateral investment treaties, state practice in relation to overseas territories and the procedure of investment tribunals.
