ISDS/ICS clause in FTAs: facilitating commerce or undermining democracy?

Abstract : This article raises questions on the ramifications of the increasing use of the Investor-to-State Dispute Settlement clause also called Investor Court System in new Free Trade Agreements. It delves into the hypothetical future of international trade relations, and what ISDS clauses may portend for the democratic process and institutions in member/signatory countries. Many Latin- American countries are signatories to these trade agreements and are already being affected by its nefarious consequences. Argentina’s ongoing case serves as a good example.
