The Transformation of Arbitration in Africa offers an in-depth analysis of the role arbitration centres based in African cities play throughout the continent.
Given the dynamic growth of African economies and the expansion of cross-border trade and commerce, the need for readily accessible African arbitral institutions has become increasingly urgent. Accordingly, this book defines and recommends ways in which these institutions can emerge as a major and indispensable factor in the growth and development of commerce in Africa.
The book was inspired by an arbitration conference hosted by the African Union Commission at its headquarters in Addis Ababa in July 2015.
What’s in this book:-
Administrators of arbitration institutions from a variety of African countries offer insightful appraisals and suggestions directed towards promoting the development and delivery of efficient, effective arbitration services to users across the continent. This book critically examines the current state of arbitration institutions in Africa, thereby developing an understanding of the gaps in current arbitral practice in Africa.
How this will help you:-
As a contribution to the discussion of the role arbitration and arbitration institutions can play in transforming the legal landscape in African countries for the resolution of commercial disputes – indeed, the entire discourse on legal efficiency and access to justice in African countries –, this book will prove invaluable to practitioners and academics in international commercial arbitration within and beyond the continent.
Its emphasis on the creation of a facilitative, supportive, and conducive cultural and infrastructural environment as a mechanism for commercial dispute resolution in Africa, and for the practice of arbitration in Africa, will appeal to in-house counsel, external legal advisors, consultants, arbitral institutions, arbitrators, and government policymakers.
