Ioannis Glinavos is Senior Lecturer in Law at the University of Westminster. He studied at Essex (LLB) and Kent (LLM, PhD) before taking a Teaching Fellowship at SOAS (Contract Law). He then held lectureships at Kingston (Contract Law) and Reading (Company and Commercial Law).
Ioannis has published two books with Routledge (2010, 2013) and a series of articles on Law and Development, Law and Economics and Investment Arbitration. He is currently researching foreign investor rights in the context of economic crises and Brexit.
He has researched how the Fair and Equitable Treatment standard and the idea of protecting the investor’s legitimate expectations could form the basis of a claim against the UK government for the consequences of Brexit. This follows research into the position of investors who suffered losses in the Greek haircut of 2012 in the context of investment treaty arbitration. More generally, he researches Investor State Dispute Settlements (ISDS) – the evolution and likely trajectory of ISDS, reflecting on consequences for perceptions of arbitration and its links with politics and economics.
Ioannis is a frequent contributor to social media, blogs and news sites on law, economics and politics.
