In 2018, ICSID began work on a new set of mediation rules. As part of a broader effort to update and further modernize the Centre’s procedural rules for resolving investment disputes, these will be the first institutional mediation rules designed specifically for investment disputes.
The mediation rules complement ICSID’s existing rules for arbitration, conciliation and fact-finding, and may be used either independently of, or in conjunction with, arbitration or conciliation proceedings. Once approved by ICSID Member States, their availability will assist Member States to implement their international investment agreement provisions offering investment mediation.
