Foreign Investment Screening | Regulatory Compliance | Risk Control
The CELIS Institute is an independent non-profit, non-partisan research enterprise dedicated to promoting better regulation of foreign investments in the context of security, public order, and competitiveness. It produces expert analysis and fosters a continuous trusting dialogue between policymakers, the investment community, and academics. The CELIS Institute is the leading forum for studying and debating investment screening policy.
The CELIS Institute was set up in 2020 by Professor Steffen Hindelang and Mr. J. Hillebrand Pohl as a permanent successor to the International Conference on a Common European Law on Investment Screening (CELIS), convened by Professor Hindelang and Dr. Andreas Moberg in 2019. A multi-stakeholder initiative, principally funded by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond, CELIS resulted in the very first, interdisciplinary grounded, comprehensive appraisal of EU foreign investment control, published in the inaugural volume of the Yearbook of Socio-Economic Constitutions in 2021 (Springer). The CELIS Institute is headquartered in Berlin.
The Institute also addresses the political and economic aspects of the legal field. Beyond screening, it covers questions relating to investment protection, security, strategy, regulation and facilitation, including dispute settlement.
