The ICSID Reports provide the only comprehensive collection of the arbitral awards and decisions given under the auspices of the World Bank's International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes or pursuant to other multilateral or bilateral investment treaties. These decisions make an important contribution to the growing body of jurisprudence on international investment. The series also includes arbitration under the Additional Facility to the ICSID Convention which has increased in recent years, most notably in relation to the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). The ICSID Reports are an invaluable tool for practitioners and scholars working in the field of international commercial arbitration. Volume 9 of the ICSID Reports includes the hitherto unpublished annulment decision in the Amco Asia case, the TV Nova/Czech Republic saga, and the first Canadian appellate court decision on NAFTA Chapter 11 arbitration and the standard of review.
