Enabling Amicable Settlement of Investment Disputes: Mediation and Conciliation

5-7 November 2014 - Energy Charter Secretariat, 56 Boulevard de la Woluwe, 1200 Brussels, Belgium



On 5-7 November 2014, the Energy Charter Secretariat Knowledge Centre organised the fifth edition in its series of Executive Training Programmes for Young Energy Professionals. Following on from the successful training sessions held at the Energy Charter Secretariat during 2013 and early 2014, this training focused on the topic of investment mediation and conciliation as part of a amicable settlement of disputes.

The Training offered three core components:

  • As a novelty, a seminar on State-to-State arbitration was held for government officials interested in acquiring additional knowledge and training on State-to-State arbitration mechanisms.
  • An optional, informative pre-training session on the Energy Charter Treaty was led by Energy Charter Experts on investment.
  • A three-day long negotiation training, including a instruction session with renowned experts on negotiating techniques, on a real-life negotiation case.
