Review of 2015 International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) Decisions
This year’s review of 2015 ICSID decisions will comprise publicly available Awards issued by ICSID tribunals in English from the period 1 November 2014 to 31 October 2015. In the interests of focusing this review on significant legal developments and also conforming to space restraints, only a selection of Awards will be considered. The selection has been based on the nature of the legal issue at issue and any other noteworthy features of the decision. This year nine awards will be considered in rough chronological order based on the date of dispatch to parties. The relative decline in number of awards could reflect the rising popularity of UNCITRAL-based arbitration. The review will conclude with a brief summary.
