Partner Gabriela Alvarez Avila Speaks on ISDS at ASIL 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting

Mexico City Partner Gabriela Alvarez Avila will speak on a webinar panel entitled, “ISDS and Climate Change Policies: A barrier, facilitator, or neither,” as part of the American Society of International Law’s (ASIL’s) 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting. The session will take place online on Thursday, June 25 at 10:15am (EDT).

The panel will explore, in the context of states’ environmental policies, the balance between compensable investment claims where investors’ expectations have been impacted by climate policies, and non-compensable claims resulting from states’ climate policies. Panelists will also discuss the impact of ISDS on achieving internationally agreed-upon climate change goals and individual states’ policies, including the potential for ISDS to impede or facilitate green energy projects.
