About the Talk:
Since Judge Lagergen labeled corruption as an international evil in his seminal ICC award in 1963, corruption arguments have taken a life of their own in the context of investor-State arbitration, growing more sophisticated and multi-faceted. In our academic fireside chat, three academics from three jurisdictions are set to take stock of the latest developments, in forging the way to treating corruption arguments in disputes involving States.
