Hernández Crespo Assists Mongolian Government in Dispute Resolution

As Mongolia was preparing to negotiate an Economic Partnership Agreement with Japan, which represented a significant development for the country, Professor Mariana Hernández Crespo and a fellow from Harvard University were selected to assist members of the Mongolian government. They travelled to Ulaanbaatar to assist in the process of developing the necessary capacities to negotiate, implement, and prevent disputes under International Investment Agreements.

Hernández Crespo contends that the need to start managing conflicts in the field of foreign direct investment is becoming global, and both governments and foreign investors have started to realize that if they do not think about the challenges ahead, the consequences might be too costly, both economically and politically.
