This edition focusses on Africa, a continent that offers significant opportunities across a number of business sectors, and which is seeing remarkable GDP growth rates in many of its nation states. We include a commentary on the means of mitigating risks arising from disputes when concluding business transactions in Africa. We review the recent changes in the arbitration landscape in Africa and their potential impact. We also include a comparative review of Maghreb’s arbitration laws, with particular focus on Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia.
We provide our usual update on developments from around the globe in international arbitration and investment treaty arbitration. We look at recent U.S. court decisions on the evolving issue of class arbitration, continue our series of articles on means of protecting foreign investments with a review of the fair and equitable treatment protection standard, and consider the approach to multi-tiered dispute resolution provisions in different jurisdictions.
