The ICSID Secretariat has added a new online publication to its website. The ICSID Caseload - Statistics is intended to provide a snapshot of the cases handled by the Centre, and is published in English, French and Spanish.
The inaugural issue (Issue 2010-1) contains an overview of all the cases registered or otherwise administered by ICSID as of December 31, 2009, and of the cases registered or administered in 2009 only. The issue provides information on the basis for consent invoked to establish ICSID jurisdiction in registered ICSID cases, the geographic distribution of cases by State party to the dispute, and the economic sectors involved in ICSID cases. It also includes data on outcomes of ICSID proceedings and the nationalities of arbitrators, conciliators and ad hoc committee members appointed in ICSID cases.
The ICSID Caseload - Statistics will be updated bi-annually and can be accessed through the "Publications" section of the Centre's website. Comments on this or any other feature of the website can be sent by e-mail to [email protected].
