Conference: Twenty-Seventh Investment Treaty Forum Public Conference

The British Institute of International and Comparative Law will host the Twenty-Seventh Investment Treaty Forum Public Conference on October 27, 2016. The theme is: "Current Developments in Valuation & Quantum in Investor-State Arbitration." The program is here. Here's the idea:
This conference addresses ongoing issues of practical importance regarding the applicable standards of compensation and methods of quantum calculation in investor-state arbitration. Leading experts from the fields of law and economics will look at some of the most important issues raised in arbitration, including the determination of the appropriate approach to quantum and key issues concerning discounted cash flow analysis. In addition, experts will address ongoing developments in investment treaty practice with respect to changing state attitudes towards compensation in investor-state arbitration and novel approaches to compensation and other remedies by investor-state arbitral tribunals.
