Arbitrators Overview

Parties may appoint arbitrators and conciliators to ICSID cases from the Panels of Arbitrators and of Conciliators or from outside of the Panels. Ad hoc Committee members in ICSID Convention annulment proceedings are appointed from the Panel of Arbitrators by the Chairman of the ICSID Administrative Council.

ICSID’s searchable database of arbitrators, conciliators and ad hoc Committee members includes all arbitrators, conciliators and Committee members who have served or are serving in ICSID cases and all current designees to the Panels of Arbitrators and of Conciliators. The database contains the curricula vitae of persons who have chosen to include their details. It enables users to search by nationality, language capacity or experience in ICSID cases.
