In the late 2000s and early 2010s, several Latin American governments renounced the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (“ICSID”) Convention and, in some instances, all of the bilateral investment treaties that previous governments had ratified. Since then, calls for investor-State dispute settlement (“ISDS”) reform have catalyzed efforts to evolve the regime as reflected: in 1) discussions at the UNCITRAL Working Group III; 2) the European proposal of a Multilateral Investment Court; and 3) the current Proposal for Amendment to the ICSID Rules. This panel will address the current acceptance of the ISDS regime in Latin America and the prospects for reform in the region.
