In 2021, the United Kingdom adopted the National Security and Investment Act (NSI Act), which allows the government to scrutinise and intervene in certain acquisitions made by anyone, including businesses and investors, which could harm the UK's national security. The NSI Act launches the first UK investment screening regime based on specific national security criteria, with the establishment of a new Investment Security Unit. This new regime has important ramifications for foreign direct investments.
The panel will bring together academics, practitioners and government officials to discuss the new regime, the implications for the parties involved and the wider impact on investment in the UK.
this event is co-organised by Queen Mary School of Law and British Institute of International and Comparative Law (BIICL).
