The Europa Research Group is pleased to invite you to our next event:

Gazprom and CDC: Defending EU Law from Arbitration?

Wednesday 4 March 2015
6pm – 7.30pm

Old College | Kenyon Mason Suite

This presentation, given by Dr Filippo Fontanelli, takes its inspiration from two recent opinions by Advocates General to the EU courts: AG Wathelet on 8 December 2014 in Gazprom, Case C-536/13 and AG Jääskinen on 11 December 2014 in CDC, Case C-352/13).

These disputes raise fundamental issues regarding 1) the compatibility of arbitrators’ cross-border anti-suit injunctions with the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice and 2) the arbitrability of claims for damages based on Article 101 TFEU. The opinions struggle to examine the effect of arbitration on the integrity of EU law, and they open up systemic issues that the Court of Justice will have to address in its judgements. Join us for the presentation and discussion afterwards.
