French Abstract: Ce papier a été écrit en anglais. Il a été traduit par Gregor Seither pour les Amis de la Terre Europe Nos remerciements sont adressés à Suzy Nikièma, IISD, pour sa relecture précieuse La Commission des Nations Unies pour le droit commercial international (CNUDCI) a confié un vaste mandat au Groupe de travail III (GTIII) en vue de travailler à une éventuelle réforme du Mécanisme de règlement des différends entre investisseurs et États (RDIE ou ISDS en Anglais) dans le cadre d'un processus fondé sur le consensus et dirigé par les gouvernements . Le Groupe de travail a achevé la Phase 1, dans laquelle les gouvernements ont identifié et examiné les préoccupations concernant le Mécanisme ISDS.

English Abstract: The authors argue that UNCITRAL Working Group III, as part of its mandate for reform of the international investment regime, should consider issues at the core of the concerns about the regime's accountability and legitimacy, especially in the case of investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS). These issues include: the right of standing for affected parties, the customary duty to exhaust local remedies, the chilling effect of ISDS, and the relationship of the international investment regime to goals of sustainable development and the rule of law. Procedural reforms of ISDS are necessary but not sufficient to address these concerns.
