Professor Christian Tams is co-hosting this year’s Frankfurt Investment Law Workshop entitled ‘International Investment Law in the Age of Digitalization’. Held on 8th and 9th March 2019, this year’s workshop addresses the challenges investor-state dispute settlement and substantive investment protection face in light of increasing digitalization. The workshop will look at questions such as: Can processing data be a protected investment? Which State is the host State of a digital investment without physical presence? What are the host State’s responsibilities towards investors facing digital threats, such as cyber-attacks? Do current investment protection standards leave enough regulatory space for States to regulate the digital transformation of their economies and societies?
