Investor-State Dispute Settlement: Are Arbitrators or Judges the Path Forward?
Join us for a seminar about the investor-state dispute settlement system (ISDS), the instrument investors can use to sue countries for alleged discriminatory practices.

Proponents see these changes as enhancing the rule of law, predictability, and consistency across cases.
