Abstract

This paper has been written in one day as an instant commentary to the TTIP debate that took place on 7 July 2015 at the EU Parliament, and how the Parliament’s Motion for a Resolution including the Recommendations to the EU Commission on the negotiations for the TTIP may shape the future of investment arbitration. The paper analyses the purpose of the paragraph on investor-state dispute settlement in the EU Parliament’s document and the amendments to such paragraph discussed at the plenary of 7 July 2015, before discussing the probable effects of this Motion on the system of investment arbitration.
