Review 2012 International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) Decisions
The following is a brief summary of the final awards in English issued and made public by the International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) during the period from the end of November 2011 to the end of November 2012. Given the increasing volume of reported decisions by ICSID tribunals (both procedural and on the merits), for the first time this yearly review will consist only of final awards on the merits. Decisions on jurisdiction and procedural orders issued by ICSID will not be included. This choice does not imply that jurisdictional and procedural issues are unimportant but rather reflects editorial necessities. Unlike previous years, the reported cases are now taken from the comprehensive Investment Treaty Arbitration website maintained by Professor Andrew Newcombe of the Faculty of Law, University of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada rather than ICSID’s own website.
