The International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes

The International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes

The International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes, ICSID, has been structured to provide international arbitration services for the disputes regarding the commercial matters focusing on investment between parties. The rules governing its Tribunal was set out in the Convention of Investment Disputes under the supervision of the World Bank in addition to the supporting treaties that provide jurisdiction such as North Atlantic Free Trade Agreement. Thus the arbitrators of ICSID are expected to evaluate the case on hand by considering it from both legal and economic perspectives. The fictional case that will be discussed at JMC 2017 is an investor-state dispute settlement in which an investor put forward its claims against a state. The case is called Montgomery v. US in and the company called Montgomery Group, found the final judgement of the domestic legislation unfair thus decided to file a memorial against the state to seek further legal assistance under NAFTA.
