In his foreword to the issue, Professor Nassib G. Ziadé, CEO of the BCDR-AAA, describes Professor Delaume as a "pioneer in the development of international investment arbitration," whose personal efforts in promoting ICSID "paved the way for the success it has since achieved and from which ICSID presently derives much benefit."

It consists of 14 articles providing in-depth coverage of such matters as dual nationals, investment claims in times of civil unrest, corruption, parties to investment disputes in the region, national laws and regional treaties.
