Close to 3000 bilateral investment agreements (BITs) have been concluded by 2015 and virtually every country is a signatory. What makes these treaties special is their enforcement mechanism: private investors can sue states directly before international arbitration potentially winning multi-million dollar awards. Given its size and atomized nature, however, practitioners struggle to effectively navigate the BIT universe. To reduce investment law's complexity, this demo introduces a new interactive web-based tool that relies on state-of-the-art technology to allow users to asses similarities and differences between agreements quickly and intuitively. The tool thereby assists investment law practitioners in structuring negotiations around a common denominator in treaty practice or helps litigators to advance their client's case by distinguishing or analogizing treaties.
