Dr Alvarez authored a case for 20th Anniversary of the Mexican Arbitration Centre and Moot Mexico

To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Mexican Arbitration Centre (CAM) and the creation of Moot Mexico, Dr Gloria M Alvarez (Senior Lecturer in Dispute Resolution) was invited to author the first case related to a windfarm investment project under the CAM rules.

The case posed challenging and relevant questions regarding issues of ethics in international arbitration, social justice, and regulatory actions executed by a host State due to the pandemic. During this case, the participants considered the following:  ethical concerns around "double-hatting" in arbitrators who can also act as counsels, issues arising from failing to consult with local communities who are arguably affected by a specific land project, and the legislation reversal on previous electricity auctions awarded to foreign investors.

This competition was attended by universities from across Latin American and began with a full day of training for the participants. Ultimately, the competition provided participants the opportunity to learn more about both negotiation skills and international investment law.

Dr Alvarez has published on these topics in two leading books:

  1. International Arbitration in Latin America: Energy and Natural Resources Disputes
  2. The ICSID Convention, Regulations and Rules: A Practical Commentary
