Assessment of the public consultation on the proposed Multilateral Investment Court

24 November 2017

At the beginning of 2017 the European Commission conducted a public consultation on the proposed Multilateral Investment Court (MIC). This briefing scrutnises the public consultation and finds that the scope, questions and methodology were highly inadequate and prevented a broad range of stakeholders from expressing their views and that the Commission misrepresented the consultation results, alleging much higher support for the MIC than was actually provided by respondents. The briefing was written by Center for International Environmental Law, the Seattle to Brussels Network and Friends of the Earth Europe.
