Herbert Smith Freehills is pleased to announce the launch of a new series of blog posts which will report on the latest developments in the NAFTA renegotiations. The series will run on our Public International Law Blog which provides analysis and commentary on public international law issues.
The series’ opening post provides practical insights to stakeholders in key industries and focusses on the context of the negotiations and the interests and objectives laid out by the states in advance of the talks. It also offers our strategic view of what interested observers should watch for.
Part 2 looks into the (unofficial) US proposal to restructure NAFTA’s investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS) mechanism, transforming it into an “opt-in” regime under which each NAFTA state would elect whether or not to permit investors of other NAFTA parties to bring claims directly against it.
