On 12-14 June 2017, 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 have designed jointly a 3-day mediator training course tailored for investor-State disputes. The course is scheduled to take place at the ICSID's facilities in Washington, D.C.
Individuals who have completed basic mediator training or have practical experience as a mediator will have the opportunity to participate in 2 days of interactive instruction with an accreditation assessment on the 3rd day. Participants who successfully complete the course and assessment will become certified CEDR Mediators in Investor-State Disputes.
This training will cover the context and framework of investor-State dispute settlement, considerations specific to investor-State mediation, intercultural competency, process design and conduct of an effective investor-State mediation, and ethical challenges, among other topics.
