Investor State Mediator Training
There is increasing interest in the potential for mediation to resolve Investor-State disputes. Recent international treaties contain specific provisions on the use of mediation in Investor-State disputes and there is increasing research and awareness on the availability and benefits of mediation in this field.
We are excited to announce that this year’s Investor-State Mediation Training will be taking place from the 7th to the 10th May 2018 in Paris.
This interactive, practice-based Investor-State mediator training, designed jointly by the Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution (CEDR), the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), the International Mediation Institute (IMI) and the International Energy Charter, will allow both Investor State Dispute Resolution Practitioners and experienced mediators to gain knowledge of the context, framework and practice of investor-State disputes, and will provide participants with knowledge and skills to mediate investment disputes. This course will also allow Investor State Dispute Resolution Practitioners to learn the framework and skills for the mediation process.
Successful completion of the course will lead to a certificate in Investor State Mediation. Investor State Dispute Resolution Practitioners that complete this course will have the opportunity to attend the Fast Track CEDR Mediation Accreditation Course, in order to gain the Internationally recognised CEDR Accreditation.
