Paris & Washington, 26 July 2023
Jus Mundi, the leading international law and arbitration research engine, is excited to announce its partnership with the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), the premier institution dedicated to resolving international investment disputes. This collaboration aims to provide Jus Mundi users and the public with a deeper understanding of the ICSID dispute settlement process and the development of international law on foreign investment.
As part of this partnership, Jus Mundi will host a selection of ICSID online resources on its platform. This will allow users worldwide to access a range of specialized texts on international investment law and investment dispute resolution procedures, including The History of the ICSID Convention, Practice Notes for Respondents in ICSID Arbitration, and the ICSID Caseload – Statistics.
ICSID will also enhance awareness of international law on foreign investment and the ICSID process by making its extensive program of publications, including the leading ICSID Review-Foreign Investment Law Journal, available to subscribers of the Oxford University Press Law Library package on Jus Mundi.
Commenting on the collaboration, Jean-Rémi de Maistre, CEO and Co-Founder of Jus Mundi, said, “Our partnership with ICSID is a significant advancement in empowering our users to conduct comprehensive research in the field of investment arbitration.”
“This collaboration offers our users unique access to ICSID resources. By integrating these secondary sources, we fulfill our mission to make international law globally accessible and enhance the value and utility of our platform for legal professionals and business practitioners who rely on current and accurate information to make informed decisions,” he added.
By combining Jus Mundi’s AI technology with ICSID’s resources, users will have faster access to a broader range of primary and secondary sources and benefit from cross-referencing tools like CiteMap and GPT-powered summary of investment awards with Jus-AI. This will enable them to build a comprehensive understanding of ICSID and investment arbitration.
Meg Kinnear, ICSID Secretary General, said, “ICSID has led the way in transparency in international investment dispute settlement and our partnership with Jus Mundi further demonstrates our commitment to ensuring the ICSID system is accessible.”
“Integrating ICSID’s publications program into the Jus Mundi platform—which already holds an extensive collection of ICSID caselaw—will be an invaluable resource for practitioners, government officials, researchers, and others working in this field of law,” she added.
The ICSID Digital Library on Jus Mundi will be freely accessible and is scheduled for release by the end of 2023.
ICSID is an international facility available to States and foreign investors for the resolution of investment disputes. Established in 1966 by the Convention on the Settlement of Investment Disputes between States and Nationals of Other States (the ICSID Convention), it is the only global institution dedicated to international investment dispute settlement.
Through its specialized rules of procedure, world-class facilities, and expert legal and administrative support, ICSID provides unparalleled dispute resolution services to States and investors. Since the first case was registered with ICSID in 1972, the majority of all known international investment disputes have been administered by ICSID.
