On 20 September 2019, Roma Tre University and UNIDROIT co-hosted the Sixth Edition of the Annual International Arbitration Lecture entitled “Globalization. A Deconstruction and Reformulation of Investor-State Arbitration within the Rubric of the UNIDROIT Principles. A Conceptual Journey”.
It was part of the programme of the International Commercial and Investment Arbitration Theory and Practice Certificate, jointly organised by Roma Tre, the Italian Arbitration Association, the International Court of Arbitration, and the Chamber of Arbitration of Milan. This edition was dedicated to the memory of the late President of UNIDROIT, Professor Alberto Mazzoni. Professor Ignacio Tirado (Secretary-General of UNIDROIT) and Professor Andrea Zoppini (Faculty of Law, Roma Tre University) opened the event, recalling the Professor Mazzoni’s enthusiasm for this Lecture Series, and introduced the Keynote speaker, Professor Pedro Martinez Fraga (Co-Head, International Arbitration, BCLP, Adjunct Professor, NYU School of Law – ICSID Panel of Conciliators). Some 70 participants gathered in the UNIDROIT Library to attend the event.
