Abstract

Rosters of adjudicators are increasingly used in investor-state dispute-settlement (ISDS). They come in several varieties, including formal, institutional rosters and informal ones. Rosters respond to several shortcomings of party appointments, and could enhance transparency of arbitral appointments. Such transparency could in turn promote the values of diversity and efficiency in ISDS. This contribution considers the implications of rosters for transparency, and their effects on individual appointments and in aggregate.
