Round table organised by professors

On 30 April 2019 the Court of Justice of the European Union held, in Opinion 1/17, that the mechanism for the resolution of disputes between investors and States provided for by the free trade agreement between the EU and Canada (CETA) is compatible with EU law.

The round table brings together members of the European institutions, academics and young researchers to discuss questions, such as the autonomy of the EU legal order and the access to an independent tribunal, raised by the creation of a Tribunal and an Appellate Tribunal and, in the longer term, the establishment of an 'Investment Court System' (ICS).
