The Nigerian Institute of Chartered Arbitrators (NICArb) is proud to present her 2022 Hybrid Annual Conference Themed: “The Future of Arbitration and ADR in Africa: Developments & Sustainability”. The future of Arbitration and ADR in Africa looks to promote a practice that is robust, affordable, timely, easily accessible, and reliable. These advantages mean it will continue to gain widespread use as an efficient and effective tool for dispute settlement. Arbitration in Africa will catch up with the unequalled opportunities and advantages that comes with the Digital Technologies of the 21st Century, while not being susceptible to manipulation and exploitation. While this vital objective would not be attained without a price to pay, considering the traditional dispute resolution mechanisms engaged by many African nations now; the questions that readily comes to one’s mind are: How do we position Africa and indeed Nigeria for this promising future? What are the developmental issues that Arbitration and ADR practice need to begin to focus on or contend with in readiness for what can be described as an imminent positive revolution? How best can the emerging trends in Arbitration and ADR generally be sustained? These and many more questions are what this year's conference will seek to address. See you there!!!
