Abstract

The paper provides an analysis of the EU's emerging approach to Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS), drawing on documents of the main EU actors (Commission, European Parliament, Council) as well as draft negotiated texts and negotiating directives. It situates the EU's debates in the context of discussions about the reform of ISDS and highlights the new opposition to ISDS among European NGOs.
