This event brings together academics, government employees and corporate counsel for high-level discussions surrounding the latest developments in investor state arbitration. 

Pasipanodya will participate in the panel “Corruption after Establishment: Should It Disqualify Otherwise Meritorious Claims?” She will address the use of corruption as a jurisdictional objection, an admissibility question and a defense on the merits in international arbitration, and also discuss the question of parallel proceedings on corruption.
