AFRICA ARBITRATION AWARDS 2020

Spotlight on Africa’s Arbitration Excellence, Innovation and Achievements.

The 2nd Annual Africa Arbitration Awards (AAA), hosted by EAIAC committee on the sidelines of EAIAC 2020, will be an opportunity to once again shine a light on exemplary leadership and success in Africa Arbitration.

In 2019, EAIAC incorporated and hosted the Africa Arbitration Awards, which aim to celebrate, recognise and honor outstanding practitioners and leaders in the Africa arbitration ecosystem. The Africa Arbitration Awards forms part of our vision of building international arbitration capacity, expanding our networks as we promote, profile and celebrate Africa’s success in international arbitration. The winners and Shortlisted Nominees were granted automatic inclusion into the Database of Arbitrators of MARC in Mauritius.  This year’s Awards brings even more exciting opportunities for the winners, we invite to participate.
