December 1, 2021

Foley Hoag international dispute resolution attorney Alejandra Torres Camprubí, Ph.D will be a featured speaker during a Virtual Symposium hosted by the Common European Law on Investment Screening (CELIS) Institute. The symposium will take place virtually on December 2-3 and 6-7, 2021.

Torres Camprubí will speak in a session about “Delimiting the Concept of National Security”, as part of a wider workshop on “National Security as a Limit to Sovereign-Driven Investment”. She will focus on the origins, scope and meaning of the concept of security between the Inter-War period and the Post-Cold War era, as reflected in the parallel birth and evolution of the disciple of International Security Studies.

Her publications include “Securitization of Climate Change: the Inter-Regional Institutional Voyage” (Oxford Yearbook of International Environmental Law, (2018): pp. 1-24).
