Promoting mediation in investor-state disputes – introducing the IPBA IASC’s decision-tree
- March 9, 2023
- JW Marriott Marquis Dubai
Mediation is promoted as a faster and cheaper alternative to international arbitration in investor-state disputes. Yet, it is still underutilized, presumably due to stakeholders’ lack of familiarity with what the process might entail and the relevant factors to be considered when deciding whether or not to mediate. The session addressed the promotion of investor-state mediation and introduced the IPBA IASC’s decision-tree, an easy-to-use tool when deciding whether mediation is suitable under a given set of circumstances.
