Prof. Chin Leng LIM, Choh-Ming Li Professor of Law, published a book chapter in June entitled ‘Reaching for Utopia, Geneva as Inspiration for Investment Disputes?’. It appears in Lewis et al (eds.), The Post WTO International Legal Order: Utopian, Dystopian and Other Scenarios (Berlin: Springer, 2020). In it LIM discusses the many senses of utopianism in connection with the attempt in UNCITRAL Working Group III to adapt lessons learnt from the WTO Dispute Settlement System, amidst an on-going backlash against the investor-State dispute settlement system.
In April, he co-authored an essay for the Centre for International Governance Innovation, headquartered in Waterloo, Canada which was published as part of CIGI’s essay series on ‘Modernizing the World Trade Organization’. The essay by Lim and Maniatis discusses the intersection between trade and intellectual property rights, entitled ‘Intellectual Property Rights Are Complicated Creatures’.
