This workshop explores topics in international investment and trade law. It includes (i) a paper comparing these two legal fields in terms of their legal rationalities and their relation to other legal fields (such as administrative law and property law); (ii) an empirical paper on the history of international investment agreements that shows convergence toward an American model; (iii) an empirical paper on the trend toward non-transparent, out-of-court settlements of investor arbitrations, and the public implications of this trend; (iv) a paper assessing the role of law in the Brazilian approach in South-South trade and investment relations, which relations are becoming increasingly important in the global economy; (v) a paper assessing the implications of new technologies and information flows for the future of trade; and (vi) a paper on the legality of trade measures to end illegal fishing in light of the decline of global fisheries.
