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: Among the issues and topics covered are the following: types of arbitration institutions available in Africa; viability and sustainability of these institutions; institutions' relationship with government; quality of service; performance of arbitration institutions in their respective countries and regions; national laws that regulate arbitration in Africa's fifty-four states; extent of collaboration with foreign institutions; provision of functional facilities, transcription services, hearing rooms, document handling, and managerial and translation services; marketing activities and strategies; mending the disconnect between Francophone and Anglophone countries; role of the Common Court of Justice and Arbitration (CCJA); and necessity of overcoming foreign negative perceptions and bias. 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.

With the inclusion of access to energy in the sustainable development goals, the role of energy to human existence was finally recognized. Yet, in Africa, this achievement is far from realized. Omorogbe and Ordor bring together experts in their fields to ask what is stalling progress, examining problems from institutions catering to vested interests at the continent's expense, to a need to develop vigorous financial and fiscal frameworks. The ramifications and complications of energy law are labyrinthine: this volume discusses how energy deficits can burden disabled people, women, and children in excess of their more fortunate counterparts, as well as considering environmental issues, including the delicate balance between the necessity of water for drinking and cleaning and the use of water in industrial processes. A pivotal work of scholarship, the book poses pressing questions for energy law and international human rights.
