Frankfurt Investment Law Workshop 2017: Oceans and Space: New Frontiers in Investment Protection?
March 10 - March 11
For many years, Frankfurt Investment Law Workshop has been a forum for the discussion of foundational issues of international investment law. With activities ranging from energy production at sea, via deep seabed mining, to space mining, spacefaring and space tourism, areas beyond territorial sovereignty are increasingly commercialized and attract foreign investment. This raises so far little explored questions at the heart of investment law. The workshop will offer a systematic analysis of these issues by inquiring into traditional sources of investment protection, such as investment treaties, contractual arrangements, and domestic laws, and by addressing the interaction of the law of the sea, space law and international investment law. The Workshop will bring together academics and practitioners and provide them with a forum for open and frank exchanges.
