Abstract

Effective system of investment dispute resolution is the basis of incentive investment climate and economic development of a state. Arbitration as a binding dispute settlement mechanism provided by multilateral and bilateral investment treaties has a number of deficiencies and that leads to the search for alternative dispute resolution methods, mediation as the main one. The article analyses the activities of international organisations and the EU in the field of providing legal environment for mediation as the method of investment disputes resolution: evaluating criteria for mediators, mediators’ registers, cre-ating institutional network of mediation agencies. The author concludes that results of such activities could be used in amending ukrainian legislation and on the tendencies in the sphere of investment dispute resolution
