Investment arbitration has become the primary means of settling disputes between states and foreign investors. The majority of those arbitration proceedings take place before tribunals of the International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID). This book provides the readerwith concise summaries of the facts and holdings of ICSID Tribunals in the years 2003-2007.
