Dr. Esenkulova will discuss the potential for Kyrgyzstan’s investment policy to align protections for human rights and protections for investors. The presentation will be based on Dr. Esenkulova’s analysis of the legislation and regulations of Kyrgyzstan, the country’s international law obligations (including bilateral and multilateral investment treaties and agreements) investment contracts and relevant ‘soft’ law.

Andrea Saldarriaga, co-lead of the Investment & Human Rights Project in the Centre for the Study of Human Rights’ Laboratory for Advanced Research on the Global Economy, will chair the discussion.

The seminar will be held from 1-2pm at 32 Lincoln’s Inn Fields on the LSE campus in London. The event is open to all, but audience members coming from outside LSE are required to register in advance by email as access to 32 Lincoln’s Inn Fields is restricted.
