Geneva Center Appoints Professor Feldman to Panel on Investor-State Dispute Settlement
Professor Mark Feldman has been appointed by the Geneva Center for International Dispute Settlement (CIDS) to its new Academic Forum on Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS). The purpose of the Academic Forum is to bring together the world’s leading scholars of investor-state dispute resolution to consider the possible reform of ISDS, which currently is under review by a working group of the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL).
The inaugural meeting of the Academic Forum was held on April 26, 2018 in New York. The meeting was co-organized by Columbia University and CIDS, and was hosted by the New York International Arbitration Commission.
Professor Feldman previously served as an invited member of the E15 Initiative Task Force on Investment Policy (World Economic Forum/ICTSD). Prior to joining STL, he served as Chief of NAFTA-CAFTA Arbitration in the Office of Legal Counsel of the United States Department of State, where he represented the interests of the United States in investor-state arbitrations.
