“Evolution not Revolution”: CIArb sets out its approach to the question of ISDS reform

14 Feb 2019

On 13 February 2019, the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators held “Evolution, Not Revolution: CIArb’s Work on Investor State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) Reform at UNCITRAL Working Group III”, a panel discussion generously hosted by Pinsent Masons LLP. The event was convened to launch CIArb’s ISDS discussion papers ahead of the UNCITRAL WG III 37th Session in New York in April 2019 and brought together a broad spectrum of viewpoints with representatives from academia, investors, practitioners and policymakers.

Our approach to reform: Evolution not Revolution

The question of ISDS reform is one of the most high-profile issues in the field of arbitration today, with certain stakeholders calling for the entire system to be replaced with a Multilateral Investment Court (MIC). As a leading centre of excellence for ADR, the Chartered Institute is committed to serve the public interest, and we have a clear interest in an ISDS framework that operates effectively.
