International Commercial Arbitration and African States is a timely assessment of the arbitral process in the African context. The book focuses on the contribution that arbitration, and other methods of alternative dispute resolution, may make to the development of African states and peoples, while satisfying the legitimate expectations of inward investors and traders.

Although focusing on dispute resolution regimes affecting or concerning African states and their nationals, the work will also have practical, policy and comparative implications for dispute resolution, commercial arbitration and foreign investment in other regions.
