Investment for Sustainable Development; Incorporating Investor Obligations in Trade and Investment Agreements

International investment governance is in the process of renewal. Moving away from traditional post-colonial investment treaty models of the late 1950s, newer approaches are emerging that take a more holistic approach, rebalance rights and obligations of different stakeholders and integrate a sustainable development lens.

This session, organized by the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD), the International Commission of Jurists (ICJ) and the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES), will discuss ways to articulate and incorporate investor obligations in international investment agreements and free trade agreements with investment chapters.
