Commercial Arbitration in Zimbabwe
Several international textbooks and casebooks on arbitration are available to the arbitration practitioner and law student. However, no current authority or practical book on the subject, specific to Zimbabwean arbitration, exists. There is a clear gap in the literature on this subject, not only in Zimbabwe but in most of the SADC countries and Africa at large.

The formation of the African Arbitration Association in 2018 and talks of establishing a SADC Commercial Arbitration Centre are among the many compelling reasons for African states to have access to their own bespoke literature on arbitration.

Commercial Arbitration in Zimbabwe is the first of its kind. It provides a simple but comprehensive overview of commercial arbitration in general and particularly in Zimbabwe. This book features the history of arbitration in Zimbabwe, hierarchy of the courts, legislation governing arbitration, role of the courts in arbitration, and the attitude of the Zimbabwean government towards arbitration. It covers various aspects of national and international standards of arbitration. This gives the book a local, regional, and global appeal, making it suitable for the Zimbabwean, SADC, African and global markets.

Commercial Arbitration in Zimbabwe is an essential reader-friendly training toolkit that can be used as a practical guide for law students, lawyers, judges, business people and arbitration practitioners in general. It simplifies the complex commercial arbitration field of law.

This book is not only a result of Davison Kanokanga’s training as an arbitrator and a lawyer but also, as an active panelist involved with a wide range of bodies. These include the Commercial Arbitration Centre in Harare, African Arbitration Association, Association of Arbitration (Southern Africa), Arbitration Foundation of Southern Africa, and International Council for Commercial Arbitration. The author has done it for Zimbabwe. It is hoped that this will inspire more authors from other jurisdictions to author their own bespoke literature on arbitration.
