The International Center for the Settlement of Investment Disputes maintains panels of arbitrators and conciliators to help settle international investment disputes between nations and multinational corporations. The nations participating with the Center provide panels of arbitrators and conciliators who are available when investment disputes arise. With recent international agreements, including NAFTA, it appears that there may be an increase in utilization of U.S. panel members.
