​The International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) launched its new website today.

The new ICSID website is dynamic in nature. This feature marks a major transformation of the website into an information system on ICSID and its activities. The new website is interactive and allows users to search through its content and find information faster and in a more user-friendly manner. The new dynamic format is meant to address the constant increase in size and complexity of the online information provided by ICSID. The content of the new website has also been enlarged. Navigation has been improved by adding a “Quick Locators” feature, a “Site Map,” and by making content browsable under a number of criteria. A “Search” feature has been added to ICSID Panels, cases, online decisions and awards and ICSID bibliography. Along with these individual searches, there is also a facility for global search of the entire website.

Access to the old site will be discontinued on December 4, 2007. During the transition period, feedback on how to further improve the new website’s usability may be sent to the ICSID Secretariat at ICSIDsecretariat@worldbank.org.
