Parties to Latin American commercial transactions have long needed a clear and detailed guide to the dispute resolution mechanisms and procedures available through the many relevant regional institutions that operate in South and Central America, Mexico, and the Caribbean. This incomparable book meets this need.

The author pays close attention to the underlying treaties and protocols, some of which are not available in English.

Among the many valuable resources provided are the following:-

  • an overview of regional and sub-regional institutions relevant to international dispute resolution; insight into the way each institution is structured and how each legislates for its member states analysis of substantive and procedural rights available to investors and states under the rules of each institution;
  • investment protection afforded by Bilateral Investment Treaties (BITs) and Free Trade Agreements, with a country-by-country compendium of the BITs and FTAs signed by each;
  • rules of operation of supra-national/sitting courts and ad hoc tribunals, including the Inter-American Commission and Court of Human Rights, the Inter-American Commercial Arbitration Commission (IACAC),
  • the Andean Court of Justice, the Caribbean Court of Justice, Mercosur s established arbitral tribunals and Permanent Review Tribunal, and the Central American Court of Justice;
  • details on how information can be obtained from the respective institutions for the purposes of further research; a
  • nalysis of major Free Trade Agreements (FTAs), including the Group of Three Agreement, the US-CAFTA-DR, and the proposed Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA);
