Chapter by Professor Freya Baetens in Bourgeois, J., Bronckers, M., Quick, R., [Eds.] WTO Dispute Settlement: Time to Take Stock (College of Europe Studies, Peter Lang, 2017).

In this chapter, Baetens scrutinizes the investor-State dispute settlement (ISDS) system in comparison with the WTO Dispute Settlement system on five specific issues : (1) appointment and functioning of arbitrators; (2) terms of reference; (3) policy space; (4) support mechanisms, and, (5) remedies and compliance.
