4th KCL TTIPills Lecture Series Event 2017-2018


While the TTIP negotiations have generated overwhelming public attention in Europe and beyond, the discussions around the EU-China Comprehensive Agreement on Investment (CAI) have proceeded quietly and slowly since 2013.

However, in view of the broad scope and complexity of the treaty, and the diverging approaches of the negotiating actors, it is only a matter of time before the draft CAI becomes subject to public scrutiny.

On June 7, Prof Yuwen Li from the Erasmus University of Rotterdam will discuss the core contentious issues of the EU-China CAI negotiations, with particular emphasis on the EU’s proposal to set up a multilateral investment court and the possible responses of the Chinese part.

From this standpoint, the EU-China CAI can be expected to have a significant impact on the international investment governance far beyond the bilateral level.

Join us at King’s College London, Council Room, 12 pm.

A sandwich lunch will follow.
