Abstract

The article presents a model for reform of investor-state arbitration aimed at enhancing institutional safeguards of independence in the system. The model is based on the person-to-government adjudicative mechanism in Canada's Agreement on Internal Trade. The article also summarizes the win-loss record of Canada and of Canadian investors in investor-state arbitration.
