In addition to the MICI team, each phase has a team of outside experts who are hired on an ad hoc basis to meet the specific needs of each case. In the Consultation Phase, we rely on experts in dialogue facilitation and dispute resolution processes. In the Compliance Review Phase, we have independent experts on gender issues, environmental impacts, and other topics.


The Consultation Phase relies on experts to facilitate dialogue and alternative dispute resolution processes, when the cases processed in this Phase so require. Maintaining the principles of impartial and fair treatment of the parties involved in a process, the facilitation experts direct and help the technical and substantial work aimed at the design, implementation, facilitation and systematization of processes within the Phase. The Terms Of Reference for the roster are available here.
