ICCA Working Group on African Arbitral Practice

The ICCA Working Group on African Arbitral Practice was established at the ICCA Mauritius Congress in May 2016, with the goal of promoting the use and development of international arbitration in Africa. 


Consultative Workshops

ICCA's Working Group co-hosted a First Consultative Workshop on Cooperation Among African Arbitral Initiatives with the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) and the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) in Mauritius on 11 May 2016. Participants in the Consultative Workshops included African arbitration practitioners, representatives of Africa-based arbitral institutes, academics and judges. At that meeting, ICCA was mandated to facilitate the creation of an umbrella organization dedicated to the promotion and development of international arbitration and arbitrators in Africa
