In light of the recent changes in the international investment regime, the main aim of this conference is bringing together economists and political scientists in particular, as well as legal scholars, who apply empirical methods in political economy – quantitative as well as qualitative – to study the effects of international investment agreements and the shifts in governments’ stance towards them. The conference will take place on 8th and 9th December 2014 at DIE in Bonn.
The call for papers can be found here. The deadline for submissions of abstracts is 5 September 2014.
