Investor-State Dispute Settlement Mechanism

In recent years, the significant increase in the number of investment-related disputes that have been submitted to international arbitration under the terms of BITs has come to the attention of the international community. The majority of the known cases against states were initiated after 2005. The Interna­tional Centre for Settlement of Investment Dis­putes (ICSID), a specialised institution of the World Bank, is particularly affected by this increase.
