A Candid and Public Conversation about Investor-State Arbitration.

Professor Joseph Stiglitz and Professor Philippe Sands QC offer assessments about the current state of investor-state arbitration, with a focus on the challenge to legitimacy and effectiveness from economic, legal and human perspective.

Stiglitz is University Professor at Columbia University, the winner of the 2001 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics, and a lead author of the 1995 IPCC report, which shared the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize. At Columbia, Stiglitz co-chairs the Committee on Global Thought and is founder and co-president of the Initiative for Policy Dialogue. His latest book, People, Power, and Profits: Progressive Capitalism for an Age of Discontent, was released in April.
  • Professor Philippe Sands QC teaches at University College London and Harvard Law School, is a practising barrister at Matrix Chambers, and the author of East West Street/Retour a Lemberg. He has acted as counsel or arbitrator in more than fifty investor state arbitrations since 1988. His new book, The Ratline: Love Lies and Justice on the Trail of a Nazi Fugitive, will be published next April.

A conversation guided by, and with the participation of, Professor Horatia Muir Watt and Professor Astrid von Busekist, Sciences Po.
