The workshop on Dispute Prevention and Settlement of Hydropower Related Disputes is conducted by King’s College on April 5.
The lecture will first explain the peculiar features of hydropower industry that render its projects and their realization susceptible to produce disputes.
The illustration will follow the relevance of four bodies of international law to avoidance, or settlement, of hydroelectric industry-related disputes. Namely, i) international water law; ii) private international law; iii) human rights law; iv) international investment law.
The state and non-state nature will be emphasized of the subjects of the legal relations stemming from the relevant rules in question.
Having special regard to the rules pertaining to transboundary water law, the substantial interest in compliance with them also by actors who are not formally their addresses, such as foreign investors, or indigenous populations, will be highlighted.
