In January 2024, delegates  in United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) Working Group III on Investor–State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) Reform reached a consensus to keep all the cross-cutting and procedural issues on the reform agenda. Given the limited time remaining for the working group to complete its reform project, delegates will need to develop and implement a clear work plan for these topics. For this reason, the working group chair called on delegations and observers to share their views on the classification, prioritisation and form of the 25 draft provisions on cross-cutting and procedural issues. 

This submission responds to that call, arguing that priority should be given to issues that address fundamental concerns about ISDS and that are likely to generate significant discussion within the working group.
