Background and Mission
CELIS Institute was born out of a multi-stakeholder, open-platform initiative. The Institute is devoted to the political, economic, and legal aspects of foreign investment, its screening, its protection, and its facilitation.
It was the adoption of EU Regulation 2019/452 establishing a framework for the screening of foreign direct investments into the Union ("EU Screening Regulation"), which gave rise to the establishment of the CELIS Institute. One of its aims is to study and to further the development of an emerging “Common European Law on Investment Screening” - in short "CELIS".
The Institute also addresses the political and economic aspects of the legal field. Beyond screening, it covers questions relating to investment protection, and facilitation, including dispute settlement.
