UNCTAD provides two key tools that facilitate research on international investment law by IIA stakeholders.
1. Bilateral Investment Treaties
The BITs' texts are collected by UNCTAD based on information provided by its Member States. The data is constantly updated, however not exhaustive.
2. Investor-State Dispute Settlement Cases
Investor-State Dispute Settlement Database: A collection of publicly known treaty-based investor-State dispute settlement cases, shown by year, parties, applicable rules or venues, available decisions and status. The displayed data is based on extensive research and interviews, but represents only those claims which were disclosed by the parties or arbitral institutions.
