In the late 1990s, the Government of Zimbabwe instituted a programme of land reform that has given rise to numerous disputes relating to the expropriation of private investments. There is a cross-border or international element to the resolution of these investment disputes. For instance, some of the disputants whose investments were expropriated by the Government of Zimbabwe are nationals of European states. In addition, some of the disputes have been adjudicated upon by various national, regional and international forums such as the courts in Zimbabwe, South Africa and the Southern African Development Community (SADC) Tribunal as well as the International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID).
