The International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) is a leading institution on the settlement of investor- state investment disputes. 153 states become members of ICSID by ratifying the ICSID convention. Member states have access to ICSID services and must agree to enforce ICSID decisions. States have also agreed to ICSID as a forum for investor-State dispute settlement by law or by contract, or through bilateral and multilateral investment treaties. Further information may be found at the ICSID website.
