ICSID is a leading international arbitration institution in the field of investor-State dispute settlement. It was established in 1966 as a part of the World Bank pursuant to the Convention on the Settlement of Investment Disputes between States and Nationals of Other States. The number of ICSID investor-state arbitrations has dramatically increased over the last ten years and ICSID tribunals awarded billions of dollars to compensate damages sustained by foreign investors.

The book describes ICSID's mandate, its organization and core functions, its arbitration and conciliation mechanisms, jurisdiction, recognition and enforcement of ICSID awards. Finally, it discusses the main principles of international investment law such as fair and equitable treatment, denial of justice, expropriation, most-favoured nation and other principles.

Annexed to the book are the full text of the ICSID Convention, its arbitration and conciliation rules, the list of the ICSID Convention signatories, ICSID administrative and financial regulations, as well as the Report of the Executive Directors on the ICSID Convention.

Attached are the book's cover and the table of contents.
