The Convention on the Settlement of Investment Disputes between States and Nationals of other States entered into force in October 1966, and is administered by ICSID (International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes). There are now 131 countries which have ratified the convention. Its caseload has grown substantially during the last ten years. In this unique compendium, the official text and Professor Schreuer's updated commentary on the entire Convention is set out, Article by Article, as at June 2000.

This books offers the most comprehensive explanation of the functioning of this important mechanism for the settlement of investor-host State disputes. It incorporates the preparatory work, the literature and the practice under the Convention, as well as a complete tables and index, and cross references to the ICSID Reports. This practice-oriented guide will be an indispensable tool for anyone dealing with the ICSID Convention.
