The International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) has proposed comprehensive changes to modernize its rules for resolving disputes between foreign investors and States.
On the occasion of the 4th edition of Casablanca Arbitration Days (29-30th November 2018, Hyatt Regency Hotel Casablanca), the Casablanca International Mediation and Arbitration Centre (CIMAC) and ICSID are jointly organizing a side-event on the ICSID rule amendments. Mr. Paul-Jean Le Cannu, ICSID Team Leader and Senior Counsel, will provide an overview of the proposed changes, followed by an interactive discussion with the audience. Join us for this important conversation on crafting the next generation of the ICSID dispute settlement rules.
Date: Wednesday, 28th November 2018
Venue: Hyatt Regency
Hour: 9:00 am
Due to the limited number of places available, registration will be on a “first come, first served” basis.
If you wish to participate, please send an email to Mrs Soukaina Ennaciri (firstname.lastname@example.org) or M. Arnaud Oulepo (email@example.com) under the subject line “ICSID side-event CAD 2018” by 27 November 2018.
Established in 1966 by the ICSID Convention, ICSID provides an independent and neutral forum for the resolution of international investment disputes. It has extensive experience in this field, having administered the majority of all international investment cases. States have agreed on ICSID as a forum for investor-State dispute settlement in most international investment treaties and in numerous investment laws and contracts.
Established in 2012, the Casablanca International Mediation and Arbitration Centre (CIMAC) is the result of the merger of previous Moroccan arbitral institutions. Located in the most dynamic financial centre in Africa (Casablanca), CIMAC delivers a fair dispute resolution service to investors doing business in Africa through arbitration and mediation.
All speakers and attendees of the workshop are invited to join a post-event dinner on 28th November 2018 at the Hyatt Regency at 8 pm.
With best wishes, CIMAC in collaboration with ICSID.
