Overview of Investment Treaty Clauses on Mediation

ICSID’s Overview of Investment Treaty Clauses on Mediation draws on an extensive survey of existing dispute resolution clauses in bilateral investment treaties, free trade agreements, and dispute settlement provisions in model treaties. 

By analyzing all known clauses that provide for mediation in some form—nearly 350 in total—the paper captures the full range of approaches to integrating mediation in investment treaties. It is intended as a resource for governments considering mediation as a dispute-resolution option in future investment treaties and contracts.
