28 July – Should Australia agree to investor-state dispute settlement in the Trans-Pacific Partnership?
Investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS) has emerged as possibly the most controversial aspect of deep and comprehensive trade agreements like the Trans-Pacific Partnership. ISDS is particularly controversial in countries such as Australia, the US and Germany where it has been used to challenge popular public policies aimed at health or environmental protection (respectively cigarette packing, chemical bans and nuclear phase-out).
Junior Professor Emma Aisbett from University of Hamburg will discuss whether investor-state dispute settlement encourages more foreign investment, and whether any investment so won is likely to be good for Australia.
