THE TRANSFORMATION OF ARBITRATION IN AFRICA. THE ROLE OF ARBITRAL INSTITUTIONS

The Transformation of Arbitration in Africa. The Role of Arbitral Institutions

 

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.
