Mediation Committee (Lead)


Buoyed by evolving global economic interactivity and driven by the initiative of such institutions as ICSID and UNCITRAL, Investor-State Mediation has become a growing staple of the ADR lexicon and feature of investment dispute management.
This session will feature institution representatives, legal counsel, and mediators who, together, will;

  • Address current international developments
  • Consider new mediation provisions being adopted in bilateral and multilateral investment treaties
  • Provide practice updates on the use of mediation in Investor-State disputes

Expect a lively exchange around one of the hottest sectors in international dispute resolution
