The World Trade Institute recently appointed Associate Professor Mariana Hernández Crespo as a faculty member. She joins a selective international network of experts, furthering WTI’s efforts in leading the global path in negotiation, implementation, and prevention of disputes under International Investment Agreements.
“For someone working in the emerging field of investor-State dispute settlement, WTI provides an extraordinary setting to advance conflict management, dispute prevention and dispute systems design in the field of investment," Hernandez Crespo said. "I believe that by affecting the field of investment through participatory processes, we are advancing the common good.”
The WTI, located in Switzerland, is a global leader in international trade and investment. It is a host institution of the Swiss National Centre of Competence in Research on Trade Regulation. The WTI was commissioned with the task of developing policy recommendations that could better balance economic and regulatory objectives in European and international economic law.
