The African Arbitration Association has just published the African Arbitration Atlas, which constitutes a free online resource including African arbitration and a directory of African international arbitrators. The atlas is interactive and includes information on whether a particular country has arbitration institutions, has adopted the UNCITRAL Model Law, and/or has signed the New York Convention, the ICSID Convention, and OHADA. The atlas also includes a comparative feature that allows direct comparison of two jurisdictions.
The arbitrator database allows users to search arbitrators by gender, nationality, language, specialties.
For the official website of the African Arbitration Atlas, see here.
