The folks at UNCTAD have published their annual summary of new investor-state cases.
They find that 2012 was another record year for the system: more cases were launched than ever before (62), and more decided that in past years (42). Of the 17 finalized merits cases, governments lost more than has been true in the past (over 70 percent).
The total number of known cases has now topped 500 – almost half of which have been concluded.
Check out the summary – a nice concise summary of the year in corporate claims.
