The Conference on Custom and International Investment Law held at Washington,U.S.A, 23rd -24th September 2020.

Venue : The America University Washington College of Law

Date : 23rd and 24th September 2019

No registration fee.

About the Conference

The conference’s subject is “Custom and International Investment law”. The connection between customary international law (CIL) and international investment law has never been more pronounced. Despite this, several areas and topics that highlight this inter-connection remain woefully under analyzed and consistently overlooked. The present conference aims at addressing this Lacuna. The event will bring together leading academics, international judges/arbitrators and other practitioners, to discuss the most pertinent issues relating to the interaction between CIL and the International Investment Law, both from a theoretical and a practical perspective.

Call for Papers

The Organizing Committee of the conference “Custom and International Investment Law” is pleased to invite to the Conference, which will hold six thematic panels, an expert round-table and feature several keynote speakers (with invited experts and speakers, inter alia a former judge of International Court of Arbitrators). Scholars and practitioners interested in presenting during the Conference are encouraged to send their proposals. In selecting speakers, the Organizing Committee will consider the quality of the proposed papers. Each paper will be double-blind peer reviewed. Also, the speakers are requested to submit their paper before the conference (deadline 1st September 2020). Submitting the papers on that date is a precondition in order to be considered for the prepared publication. Authors of papers , which will be selected for publications, will be given time (until 1st November) to prepare the final version of their article/ chapter.

Within this framework, six main thematic issues will be discussed. Therefore, we invite submission of proposals engaging with any aspect that falls under the purview of these thematic issues as a dimension of the overarching theme of the conference. The organizers welcome proposals addressing one of the following issues, which set out exemplary but not exhaustive questions that may be addressed in the presentation and paper.

Thematic Issues

Thematic Issue 1: Importance and Evolution of CIL in International Investment Law. How has the evolution of international investment law affected our understanding of CIL? How and to what extent does CIL remain relevant for the contemporary problems with which
international investment law is faced? What can we learn from the practice of the mixed claims commissions (Mexico/Venezuela, Versailles Treaty commissions, etc.) regarding the emergence and development of customary rules of investment law? How did/do 19th and 20th century customary investment law rules (or the fact of their absence) influence or impact the
emergence of the present-day ISDS and investment treaty regime? How would the investment regime look like today if at certain points in time a customary rule (e.g.: NIEO) had emerged, while in fact it didn’t (counter-factual thinking)?

Thematic Issue 2: Interpretation of CIL in International Investment Law. Despite the importance of CIL in International Investment Law, both as primary and secondary rules, an area that has been relatively untouched has been that of interpretation of CIL. Investment tribunals do not merely identify the content of CIL rules through the classical doctrine of
State practice and opinio juris, but quite often achieve this content-determination through a process of interpretation that resembles quite closely that of treaty interpretation. The point of this thematic issue will be to explore this method of content-determination of CIL, and investigate the interpretative practices of CIL that are characteristic of International
Investment Law. For instance, are we dealing with rules of interpretation, or just merely principles of logic, when we discuss interpretation of CIL in international investment law? How similar are these rules/principles to treaty interpretation (i.e. do we use teleological, systemic, or other methods known in treaty interpretation)? Have the rules of interpretation themselves been interpreted by investment tribunals?

Thematic Issue 3: State Responsibility and Wrongfulness in International Investment Law. Within this thematic issue, the relevant issues are how the customary rules on State responsibility are applied in international investment law. Several sub-sets of rules on State responsibility raise intriguing questions within the scope of international investment law,
circumstances precluding wrongfulness, most notably countermeasures and state of necessity, being the most prominent of these. How do investment arbitration tribunals apply and interpret the customary rules of state responsibility? How do domestic courts, ruling on challenges to investment arbitration awards, apply and interpret the customary rules of state responsibility? Is there a noticeable difference between the practice of arbitral tribunals and domestic courts? Do arbitral tribunals/domestic courts follow and ICJ practice and the ILC commentary or do they significantly deviate from them? If so, do they do so across the board
or only regarding specific rules and specific topics? Has there been a change in the practice since the adoption of the 2001 ILC Articles?

Thematic Issue 4: State Responsibility and Compensation. Despite the fact that state responsibility and standards of compensation are a critical issue in contemporary investment arbitration there is still a great degree of uncertainty surrounding these topics. This is further exacerbated by the fact that a clear understanding of their normative status and interplay is crucial not only to the adopted litigation strategy, but also to the decision of whether to pursue litigation of a dispute at all. Within this thematic issue, we aim to examine a number of critical issues. Should the standards of compensation be perceived as reflecting CIL? Are the established methods of valuation, if any, norms of CIL? How do courts arrive at these standards, through an evaluation of state practice and opinio juris or through an interpretative exercise of a more general pre-existing CIL rule? Given the criticism of PCIJ and ICJ judgments on investment law (see, for instance, the debate on whether the PCIJ really applied CIL in the Chorzów Factory case) what is truly the content of the contemporary principles for damages and compensation that stem from CIL? In sum, which of the following are the methods that are applied in investment law? Are they an assertion, an application or an interpretation of existing CIL rules? Or are they perhaps something entirely new and beyond custom or even beyond law?

Thematic Issue 5: CIL and Execution and Annulment Proceedings Before Domestic Courts. The role of CIL in execution and annulment proceedings in domestic courts is the focal point of this thematic issue. Examining the practice of national courts and regional or country specific differences with respect to their approach to CIL and investment law will yield interesting results. For example, how do domestic courts interpret and apply CIL in execution and annulment proceedings? What different patterns exist and what are the reasons for such divergences (or convergences) of the national approaches? What is the approach of domestic courts to the elements of custom under international law? Are there differences discernible with regard to specific issue areas or with regard to specific countries?

Thematic Issue 6: TWAIL, CIL and International Investment Law. The questions to be asked within this thematic issue are: What lessons that can be learned from the Third World Approaches to International Law (TWAIL), e.g. which customary norms derive from the times of gunboat diplomacy and how has their continued relevance shaped the investment regime as it stands today? What are the regional differences regarding their approach to CIL and what can we learn from the diverse practice of various continents (in opposition to the Western-centric prevailing attitude)? For example, is there a regional Latin American CIL of relevance for international investment law and arbitration?

Application Process

To submit a proposal, please send an email to the following address, attaching an abstract of max. 800 words, together with a CV (no more than 2 pages) in a single document (.pdf format).

ABOUT CCRM Centre for Consumer Rights and Marketing (CCRM) has been established in Symbiosis Law School, Hyderabad with the motive of understanding the multi-dimensional aspects of a buyer and seller relationships. It works on creating consumer awareness and also in understanding the importance of responsible marketing. These two elements, in turn, lead to effective entrepreneurial development.


Consumerism is a social movement seeking to augment the rights and powers of buyers in relation to sellers and has gradually emerged in most of the western countries as a powerful force to be reckoned with, as the markets are now flooded with innumerable varieties of products.

It’s been claimed that consumerism has led the society to a point where humanity now has a global ecological footprint, one third larger than the planet we inhabit. Sustainable consumption can be a remedy for excessive consumption. Moving towards sustainable consumption may in the end be a task for the individual but the debate about this must also acknowledge the structural factors that surround the consumer. The focus here will be on the power of the political system to intervene.


The major theme of the symposium is “Consumerism, Consumer Citizenship and Sustainable Consumption”. We are inviting papers from different disciplines including Law, Business Management, Political Science and Environmental Sciences. The sub-themes include, but are not limited to:

  1. Jurisprudential and conceptual dimensions of consumerism
  2. Consumer advocacy- Innovation and transformation of consumer laws
  3. Consumer protection and criminal liability
  4. Consumerism in International integration of E-commerce
  5. Political Consumerism
  6. Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainable consumption
  7. Consumer citizenship and global citizenship
  8. Crony Consumerism

Call For Papers: The UMKC Law Review

The UMKC Law Review is pleased to announce a call for papers relating to the executive branch’s scope of power and its impact on administrative law and the lives of real people. Selected papers will be published in the Special Topics Symposium Winter 2018 edition of the UMKC Law Review.
This symposium invites proposals for papers exploring legal and administrative issues around the authority vested in the President of the United States. The constitutional limits on executive action, ethics and accountability in government, the separation of powers, the far-reaching economic and social effects of proposed or anticipated administrative reforms, and other considerations relating to the intersection of executive and administrative authority are all topics under the umbrella of this symposium.  We also welcome analysis of the interaction between the executive branch and areas of administrative concern and impact, such as the environment, healthcare, consumer protection, banking regulation, and other areas dependent on agency oversight. The recent proliferation of executive orders and new structural rules, such as the one-in, two-out regulatory policy and possible changes for the organization of the Executive Branch, make the use of executive orders another topic of interest.
Under the new administration, will established tests for judicial deference to executive agencies, such as Chevron deference and the arbitrary and capricious standard, change?  Will the administration’s philosophy affect the metric for analyzing regulations’ worth? Will promises of deregulation affect how agencies approach their statutory duties?  How will agencies interpret existing ethics laws and regulations?  Will the Supreme Court address questions such as the Emoluments Clause, the Take Care Clause, and the Public Trust Doctrine? These questions provide examples of the broad scope of the symposium.
Issue 4 of UMKC Law Review’s 86th Volume will explore these and related topics with the goal of advancing awareness of Presidential power. Articles and essays of all lengths and papers by single authors or multiple authors are invited. Preference will be given to works between 5,000 and 25,000 words. To be accepted for publication in UMKC Law Review, articles must not have been previously published. First drafts are due August 18, 2017, and final papers are due September 1, 2017.
Proposals for papers should be submitted by May 26, 2017 to the attention of Annette Griffin (, Zachary Parker (, and Professor Irma Russell (  

Proposals should include the following information: *Name, title and contact information of author *Title of paper *Anticipated length as an article or essay *Abstract or brief description of the topic

Questions may be addressed to Annette Griffin ( or Zachary Parker (

Call for Papers–The Separation of Powers: A Global Constitutional Dialogue–Milan, Italy

Subject-Matter of Symposium

Arguably no idea has been more central to democratic government than the separation of powers.

In his seminal book La Separazione dei Poteri (Giuffrè, 2001), Prof. Giovanni Bognetti (1930-2013), an eminent Italian scholar of comparative law and the best-known Italian expert on American constitutional law, traced the history and the evolution of this foundational idea in modern constitutionalism. According to Prof. Bognetti, we can distinguish two models of separation of powers: the “classic” model emerged in reaction to the centralization of powers typical of absolutist states as an effort to protect in individual liberties; the “social” model reflects the new paradigm of social rights protection in modern democracies. In the latter, according to Prof. Bognetti, we perceive a kind of political and legal transformation of the classic conception of separation of powers—a transformation that becomes even more pronounced against the backdrop of globalization, multiculturalism and the rise of supranational legal orders.

In light of the deep constitutional and political changes occurring at the turn of the new century in 2001 when his book was published, Prof. Bognetti concluded his book with thoughts on what would happen to the organization of political powers and to the separation of powers in the next 20 years (p. 176).

In May 2017, nearly 20 years later, we will gather in memory of Prof. Bognetti to host an international dialogue on the transformation of, prospects for, and challenges to the separation of powers in our contemporary setting.

Invited scholars will offer a variety of perspectives on the separation of powers in legal scholarship. Drawing from country-specific and cross-national experiences with separation of powers, invited scholars will take comparative, doctrinal, historical, legal and theoretical approaches to the study of the idea of separation of powers.

Structure of Symposium

This full-day Symposium on Monday, May 22nd, 2017, will be held entirely in English and will feature two roundtables and two panels, each with three presenters. The confirmed participants are: Prof. Jürgen Bast, Prof. Cindy Skach, Prof. Stephen Tierney, Prof. Jeremy Waldron, Prof. Anneli Albi, Prof. Leonard Besselink, Prof. Tommaso Edoardo Frosini, Prof. Giuseppe De Vergottini, Prof. Nicolò Zanon and Prof. Vincenzo ZenoZencovich.
