TTIP: Investor Protection as a Model

Overview


Sabine Konrad, who is one of Germany’s arbitrators on the ICSID arbitration tribunal, spoke on this televised interview to rebut criticism of the arbitration and investor protection clauses in the TTIP transatlantic free trade agreement.” Investment protection legal arbitrations are international legal procedures,” Ms. Konrad noted. “They are mostly based at the World Bank in Washington and the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague, follow very clear rules of international law and are distinguished by a high degree of transparency.”
