Mediation & Conciliation

ICSID supports efforts by parties to resolve investment disputes through mediation and conciliation, and offers its facilities and administrative services, including expert support from its staff to assist the parties throughout the process.


As the world’s leading institution devoted to international investment dispute settlement, ICSID supports investor-State mediation though the provision of services to parties, the development of rules of procedure for mediation, and the organization of events and training courses.


ICSID conciliation is a cooperative, non-adversarial dispute resolution process. The goal of the Conciliation Commission is to clarify the issues in dispute between the parties and to endeavor to bring about agreement on mutually acceptable terms.
