Kathryn Khamsi will be speaking on a webinar addressing “The future of arbitrating environmental, climate change, and sustainability disputes”, as part of Australian Arbitration Week 2021.

The discussants will look at the evolution of jurisprudence in relation to climate change and the environment, and what it means for arbitration; how environmental protection is being used both to defend and advance investment treaty claims; evolutions in environmental protection, including emissions trading schemes, and the disputes that may arise in their regard.

The panel, which is hosted by Corrs Chambers Westgarth, will take place on Tuesday 19 October at 9:00am AEST (Monday 18 October at 11:00pm BST).
