(p.261) 11 Aspects of the New Cases
The History of ICSID

Antonio R. Parra

Oxford University Press

Chapter 8 examined seven aspects of the cases submitted to the Centre in its first two decades: the registration by the Secretary-General of requests to institute proceedings; the constitution of conciliation commissions and arbitral tribunals; approaches of arbitral tribunals to jurisdictional issues; provisional measures; the determination by arbitrators of the law applicable to the substance of the dispute; the working of the remedy of annulment afforded by Article 52 of the ICSID Convention; and the enforcement of awards. This chapter discusses these same aspects in relation to the cases submitted to the Centre between the beginning of 2000 and the end of ICSID's 2010 fiscal year (on June 30, 2010). The picture that emerges is one of tumultuous, often discordant, development as participants in the process wrestled with a host of procedural and substantive issues arising under the Convention and from the investment treaties involved in most of the cases.
