Extract from “The TPPA provides for illegal GMO contamination of our food”

The ISDS system propagated by the TPPA is structurally biased against host governments. Only the investors can bring claims: states cannot bring an ISDS dispute to the tribunal. Arbitrators are therefore incentivised to interpret and award in favour of investors so as to encourage more claims and more appointments, either as arbitrators or as counsel for foreign investors. Sixty percent of ISDS cases have been decided in favour of the investors . Furthermore, there is no appeals mechanism, unlike other normal courts of law.
