Overview

Arbitration in Africa provides an overview of arbitration legislation and arbitral practice within African jurisdictions and within African regions, and showcases the growing pool of authoritative African practitioners and scholars active in the field of international arbitration. The second edition of this unprecedented volume assembles an updated and expanded country-by-country analysis – both practical and insightful – of how arbitration is conducted in forty-nine African countries, providing essential information about legislative provisions, treaty adherence, and arbitral procedure. This updated volume also provides valuable insight into how African courts treat arbitral proceedings and arbitration-related court proceedings.

What’s in this book:

The book has five sections representing the main regions of the continent, each with a substantive introductory chapter covering the major trends within that region. The book offers country overviews addressing issues such as the following:

  • adherence to the key arbitration conventions;
  • modernity of a State’s arbitration legislation and its compatibility with the UNCITRAL Model Law;
  • particular features of arbitral practice in that jurisdiction (including responses to the COVID-19 pandemic);
  • access to and (where available) statistics from local and regional arbitral institutions;
  • significant arbitration-related national case law; and
  • enforcement of foreign arbitral awards.

A sixth section on treaty-based investor-State arbitration against African States under the ICSID Convention provides an empirical analysis of the experience and record of African States with investor-State arbitration in the period between 2010 and 2020.

Each contribution in the second edition has been updated to reflect current legislative developments and highlight new trends in arbitral practice in the jurisdiction.

How this will help you:

Arbitration practitioners and legal academics everywhere welcomed the first edition of this volume as an essential guide to an emerging and important area of international arbitration practice. This second edition tracks the significant developments (in treaty accession, reform of arbitration legislation and developing case law) that have taken place over the past decade, and is a useful tool not just for practitioners but also for those required to advise on the arbitration climate of a particular African country as part of an investment decision process.
