4th October 2022
Omnia’s Chair Cherie Blair CBE KC article entitled “International Arbitration and Human Rights: Exciting Opportunity or Existential Threat?” was recently published by the International Arbitration Law Review.
In it, Mrs Blair calls on the legal community not to discard Investor-State Dispute Settlement but rather to redouble efforts to make this mechanism compatible with human rights and – beyond that – an effective forum to promote and protect human rights.
The piece acknowledges the contributions of Omnia Partners, Ania Farren and Adam Smith-Anthony and Omnia Associate, Lauren Lederle. The article was initially presented as the 2021 Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP Arbitration Lecture given in November 2021.
