Oxford Reports on International Investment Claims
Oxford Reports on International Investment Claims (IIC) aims to publish all publicly available awards and decisions arising out of international investment arbitrations, and related enforcement or review decisions from national courts. The collection at launch included over 300 arbitral awards, decisions, and determinations issued under the auspices of bodies such as:
- International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID)
- ICC International Court of Arbitration
- London Court of International Arbitration
- Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce
- Permanent Court of Arbitration
- Association of South East Asian Nations arbitral tribunal
The site also reports awards and decisions of ad hoc international arbitral tribunals, such as those dealing with claims presented under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) or under the arbitration rules of the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL). Determinations on insurance contracts made by the US Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) are also reported.
