(Addendum July 2018) - This paper aims to give an overview of investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS), with descriptions of mediation and international investment, two broad and undefined (better to say undefinable, actually) concepts; and the particularities of the investor-state disputes (ISD), together with the present challenges and critics from the professionals and the public. Finally, it presents new trends currently being promoted by the Energy Charter Secretariat and the International Mediation Institute (IMI) in the energy sector which open undiscovered scenarios in the field of ISDS for both multinationals and States.
Presented at the Center for International Legal Studies (CILS) Symposium "International Mediation Symposium" which was held in Salzburg, Austria, 8 - 11 June 2017. Chair: Mr. Hon. Ken Fields More information about CILS www.cils.org
