Abstract

In recent years, investor-State arbitration has inspired an impressive array of high-quality commentary in a range of forms and fora. The investor-State arbitration story is intimately linked in turn to the Convention on the Settlement of Investment Disputes Between States and Nationals of Other States (ICSID Convention) and the center it created - the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID or the Centre). The Guide to ICSID Arbitration aims to be a concise, reliable desk reference rather than a policy oriented commentary of the academic sort, but in succeeding at its task it manages to touch upon many of the compelling themes that surround investor-State arbitration and the substantial literature it has prompted. This book review surveys some of these themes.
