Land and Seabed Mining in International Commercial and Investment Arbitration
December 2, 2021 At 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm EST
The mining sector is an important driver of Africa’s and Latin America’s economic growth, citing the GAR Guide to Mining Arbitrations “mining is booming – and with-it mining disputes”.
Whilst most mining projects are land-based, new sources of metal supplies are being explored due to the decline of land-based deposits. With new developments in the horizon, this panel will explore:
- The predominance of the mining sector in international arbitration and landmark disputes involving human rights, and environment and community implications
- The challenges posed to adjudicating mining disputes in view of resource protective legislations
- The recent trends pertaining to sea-based mining, including the discovery of oceanic hydrocarbons in the Exclusive Economic Zone and potential commercialization of minerals in the Deep Seabed under the jurisdiction of the International Seabed Authority (ISA).
