On October 24, 2013, the German Institution of Arbitration (DIS) is hosting a half-day conference on “Recent Developments in Investment Arbitration”. The venue is the Frankfurt International Arbitration Center (FIAC) at the Frankfurt Chamber of Commerce and Industry (see here for the full programme). The conference commences at 9:00 am with an address by the Minister of Justice in the Federal State of Hesse, Jörg Uwe Hahn, ending at noon with a lunch reception. One of the hot topics will of course be the Eureko v. Slovak Republic case, in which the Frankfurt Court of Appeals (Oberlandesgericht) had upheld a BIT arbitration clause and found against the Slovak Republic – the matter is currently pending before the Federal Supreme Court (Bundesgerichtshof) – and the approach by the European Union to BIT Arbitration more generally.
