Reseacrh map instructions


ICSID Lawyers proudly hosts the International Investment Arbitration Research Map System ('Research Map').

The Research Map is very easy and intuitive to use. Simply place your mouse cursor over either the relevant text or geographical boundary of the jurisdiction you would like to research. Once hover-activated by your mouse cursor, the relevant jurisdiction becomes clickable. Simply click on your desired jurisdiction to access the resources (i.e. treaties, commentaries, guidelines, etc.) of your selected jurisdiction.  

The Research Map operates on three (3) distinct levels of available resources (i.e. international, regional/continental, national). For example, on the initial international level, you can either access international level law resources, or you can click on a continent/region to access that region's regional/continental legal resources or to access that region or continent's national legal resources. For example, if you want to access the North American Free Trade Agreement, hover over the text or geographical boundary of North America, then click the activated text or area, then the North American map will appear. At this point you can click "North America" to access the North American Free Trade Agreement. you could also click on the text or geographical boundary of for example, Mexico, and access Mexican international legal resources.

ICSID Lawyers welcomes all users to submit updates, additional resources for inclusion, revisions, etc. to make the Research System as accurate and useful as possible. Please forward all such feedback to [email protected] or use the Research Map Feedback system to the right. Together we can keep the Research Map the best free international investment arbitration research tool in the world.
