With this aim, SAIL is conducting a Lecture on ‘Arbitration as a mechanism for settlement of cross border disputes: Investment disputes of Non-State Actors v. State’ by Mr. Gary Born.
About the Lecture
SVKM’s Pravin Gandhi College of Law presents a Lecture on ‘Arbitration as a mechanism for settlement of cross border disputes: Investment disputes of Non-State Actors v. State’. In Mr. Born’s words, “Arbitration is more efficient, more expeditious, more expert, more even-handed and more enforceable.”
Arbitration is considered more even-handed, particularly in the international context, because instead of having a dispute resolved on one party’s home turf one can have a dispute resolved in an independent, neutral third country before an independent and impartial arbitral tribunal.
The lecture focuses on Non-State Actors holding States liable in Investment Arbitration Disputes and how such disputes are resolved through Arbitration as the dispute resolution mechanism.
