Mr. Balouziyeh will also participate in another panel entitled, “Mind the gap: using regional mechanisms to create comprehensive accountability solutions,” on Wednesday, November 1. This session will address the issue as to whether regional human rights mechanisms can play a role in eliminating impunity for atrocity crimes and other serious crimes. Mr. Balouziyeh serves as an officer of the IBA Human Rights Law Committee and War Crimes Committee.
On Wednesday, November 1, international arbitration partner Simon Batifort will chair a panel on “Investment arbitration and insolvency.” In this session, panelists will discuss the preliminary findings of the IBA Arbitration Committee’s Insolvency and Arbitration Working Group on the intersection between investment arbitration and insolvency. Panelists will discuss issues relating to jurisdiction, attribution, merits, causation/damages and procedure. Mr. Batifort serves as an officer of the IBA Arbitration Committee and co-chair of its Insolvency and Arbitration Working Group.
On Thursday, November 2, litigation partner Jason Wright will speak on a panel entitled, “Advancing accountability in Ukraine and beyond?” The panel will focus on accountability efforts and whether the lessons learnt in the justice efforts in other conflicts have influenced best practices for investigations for international crimes in Ukraine.
