Book Launch: Fair and Equitable Treatment and The Rule of Law by Velimir Zivkovic
R1.13 Ramphal Building, University of Warwick

The GLOBE Centre is pleased to invite you to the launch of Dr Velimir Zivkovic's book, Fair and Equitable Treatment and the Rule of Law with discussants, Professor Mavluda Sattorova, Liverpool Law School and Dr Jure Zrillic, City Law School.

About the Book:
Fair and Equitable Treatment and the Rule of Law provides a unique argument concerning the grounding of the FET standard in general principles of law and the importance of the host state’s national rule of law and pre-existing obligations for the application of the FET standard. By comprehensively investigating the fair and equitable treatment standard (FET), this book presents how this standard in investment treaty disputes can be both legally justified and realistically beneficial. It reflects on how FET jurisprudence can be advantageous to both the rule of law and to the legitimacy of the international investment regime.

About the Author:
Dr Velimir Zivkovic is Associate Professor at Warwick Law School. His work focuses on the interplay of international investment law and other areas of international and national law, as well as rule of law issues affecting these areas. He explores these topics by considering both the more traditional, doctrinal insights and critical legal studies. The focus is often on arguing whether and how the existing legal structures – in addition to being rightfully criticized and/or reformed – can also be used as a force for good in their present state.

About the Discussants:

The discussants for this event will include Professor Mavluda Sattorova, Professor of International Economic Law at Liverpool Law School, Dr Jure Zrillic, Senior Lecturer at City Law School and our own Professor Christopher Bisping, Associate Professor at Warwick Law School, University of Warwick.

Lunch will be served before the launch. Please advise us if you have special dietary requirements. Email

GLOBE Book Event: Cash, Clothes and Construction: Rethinking Value in Bolivia’s Pluri-Economy
OC.0.01, Oculus Building

About the Event:
This event is based on Professor Kate Maclean's book Cash, Clothes and Construction: Rethinking Value in Bolivia's Pluri-Economy and Professor Macclean will be joined by discussants, Professor Ann Stewart, Professor Dalvinder Singh and Dr George Meszaros.

The event is chaired by Dr Serena Natile.

Bolivia’s Financial Services Law: Supporting an economy where all economies fit?
Bolivia’s Financial Services Law (FSL) was implemented in 2013 by former Warwick graduate Luis Arce, then Minister of Economy and Public Finance, now President. The law was an integral part of the ruling Movement towards Socialism government’s aims to reverse the social exclusion and inequality caused by decades of orthodox adjustment policies and create a financial architecture that could support an inclusive, post-neoliberal economy. The FSL recognised non-conventional collateral, imposed interest rate ceilings and established targeted credit quotas for productive enterprises and social housing, with the aim of supporting productive sector development and valorising the social mission of finance.This seminar will analyse the FSL in the context of the broad aim of the Movimiento al Socialismo to create a pluri-economy: an economy where all economies fit. It will examine the requirements placed on the formal banking sector in the context of the broader financial ecology of lending and banking institutions in Bolivia, including the traditional Andean lending mechanisms and community gift exchanges which underpin the so-called ‘informal’ enterprises which flourish in Bolivia’s vast peri-urban popular markets.

About the Author:
Kate Maclean is Associate Professor at the Institute for Global Prosperity, The Bartlett, UCL. This paper is taken from her latest book, Cash, Clothes and Construction: Rethinking Value in Bolivia's Pluri-Economy, recently published by University of Minnesota Press. She is also author of Social Urbanism and the Politics of Violence: The Medellín Miracle, and co-editor of Seduced and Betrayed: Exposing the contemporary microfinance phenomenon.
