ISDS Navigator update: 1,229 known investment treaty cases by 31 July 2022

20 Dec 2022

UNCTAD has updated its Investment Dispute Settlement Navigator. The ISDS Navigator is now up-to-date as of 31 July 2022.

The ISDS Navigator update covers new cases, awards and arbitrator appointments compiled on the basis of public sources and specialized reporting services.

Key findings of the update

During the first seven months of 2022, claimants brought at least 23 known investor-State dispute settlement (ISDS) cases pursuant to international investment agreements (IIAs).

Additional cases have surfaced for previous years and the numbers were adjusted accordingly.

As of 31 July 2022, the total number of known investment treaty arbitrations had reached 1,229.

As some arbitrations can be kept fully confidential, the actual number of disputes filed is likely to be higher.

You can browse the ISDS Navigator to find information on the subject matter and the status of arbitral proceedings, awards and decisions issued by tribunals, breaches of IIA provisions alleged and found, amounts claimed and awarded, and arbitrators serving on the tribunal.

The data set is available for download in excel format here.
