In December 2020, the European Commission called for applications in connection with the renewal of the pool of arbitrators and the separate pool of trade and sustainable development experts for dispute settlement panels under trade agreements to which the European Union is a party.

Applicants’ suitability for appointment was assessed by an independent selection panel of experienced international judges and academics, nominated by the European Parliament, the Council, of the European Union Member States and the Commission.

Matthew Happold, Professor in International Public Law at the University of Luxembourg has been appointed to the ‘List of Candidates Suitable for Appointment as Arbitrators’. The Commission will draw on this list to make proposals for the appointment of arbitrators in specific cases or for pre-agreed lists (rosters) under the relevant bilateral agreements with third countries.
