Webinar on Investment Treaties and Human Rights Law: Interactions and Recent Developments

Date: November 21, 2019
Location: Webinar

Jesse Coleman and Brooke Guven joined the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) and Third World Network to discuss the interlinkages between international human rights and investment law. The webinar addressed three core questions:

  1. How does international human rights law interact with international investment law?
  2. Have human rights issues arisen in the context of multilateral reform discussions?
  3. What could the role of a legally binding instrument to regulate business activities under international human rights law be in tackling the interface between human rights and investment obligations and issues?

A recording of the webinar is below.
