Comments on ICSID Discussion Paper, "Possible Improvements of the Framework for ICSID Arbitration"

By Aaron Cosbey, Luke Eric Peterson, Konrad von Moltke on December 14, 2004
IISD's Investment and Sustainable Development team has responded to a call for comments by the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) on a public discussion paper which proposes reforms to its handling of international investment treaty arbitrations, including increased transparency and an appeals mechanism. IISD's response calls for a more ambitious reform agenda for ICSID, including its devolution from the World Bank, and calls upon governments to address deficiencies in other international investment arbitration venues as well.
