Abstract

The investment dispute settlement mechanism included in Chapter 11 of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is truly "revolutionary" insofar as it represents the first multilateral treaty to provide individuals and corporations direct access to a tribunal of an international nature to resolve their disputes with the host State of the investment. This paper describes the relevant Chapter 11 provisions and offers a panorama or a vue d'ensemble of the different types of claims which have been filed so far under Chapter 11.

Keywords: NAFTA Chapter 11, arbitration
