This Practice Note tracks the details of key awards and decisions issued by tribunals in investment treaty arbitration proceedings, principally those administered by the International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID). The Practice Note also covers relevant awards and decisions issued in proceedings conducted under the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) Arbitration Rules and administered by other arbitral institutions such as the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce (SCC), the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) and the International Court of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC). While there is no recognised system of precedent in investment treaty arbitration, previous decisions are often cited by parties during proceedings and referred to by arbitral tribunals in their decisions.

This Practice Note only features awards and decisions published in 2018, although they may have, in some cases, been issued to the parties prior to 2018.

Note:

  1. the focus of this tracker is awards and milestone decisions on, for example, jurisdiction, rather than other procedural orders in the proceedings

  2. decisions on proposals to disqualify arbitrators in ICSID arbitration proceedings are considered in Practice Note: ICSID arbitration—introduction and procedure—proposals to disqualify
