An ICSID Convention Requirement?
Investment disputes between investors and a state are settled by the Convention on the Settlement of Investment Disputes between States and Nationals of Other States. The Convention however has not included a mandate that disputes must be settled by applying the principle of good faith. This paper suggests that good faith is till applicable as it is a universal principle and can be invoked via the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties.
