About 4th SOAS Arbitration in Africa Conference- 2nd-4th May 2018 at Radisson Blu Hotel and convention Center-Kigali Rwanda

We shall examine how African arbitration practitioners can better support the development of both domestic and international arbitration in their individual countries, regions and collectively across the continent and globally. In this conference series, we have interrogated how arbitration institutions, national courts and the executive and legislative arms of governments can better support the development of arbitration in Africa.

At these conferences, participants from across the continent and outside the continent have shared their experiences of arbitrating in Africa. Relevant functionaries from the arbitration centres, judiciaries and governments have started changing their behaviour as a direct result of the exchanges at our conferences. In 2018, we shall focus on ourselves as arbitration practitioners with our foreign colleagues, to examine how we, as practitioners and users, can better support the development of (domestic and international) arbitration in the continent.
Panels will include:

Panel 1 will focus on the arbitration practitioner as an administrator of an arbitration centre.
Panel 2 will focus on race and gender in arbitration (with particular focus on Africans).
Panel 3 will examine how to ‘break into’ international arbitration.
Panel 4 will focus on academics and trainers in the law and practice of arbitration.
Panel 5 will focus on the role of tribunal secretaries in arbitration.
Panel 6 will focus on the role of counsel and experts in arbitration.

We shall have simultaneous translation in three languages: Arabic, English and French

Professional Arbitrators, practicing lawyers, corporate counsels, judges, business professionals and academicians.
