Southern Africa International Arbitration
I-Arb Africa and the University of Pretoria are delighted to bring to Pretoria the 1st Edition of the Southern African International Arbitration Conference (SAIAC).
With Africa’s steep investment and development trajectory, SAIAC 2016 aims to highlight the importance of international arbitration as an effective dispute resolution mechanism and provide a platform from international arbitration practitioners from the Southern African region to network, promote their work and discuss developments in international arbitration in the region amongst each other, with the private sector and international law firms.
For the first edition of SAIAC, the focus will be on Arbitration in Extractive Sectors and the Future of Bilateral Investment Treaties in Africa, and the SAIAC Committee considers South Africa as a natural choice for hosting the first edition of SAIAC. The conference agenda will include a panel on Asia-Africa disputes and training focusing on the drafting of arbitral awards and ethical rules for arbitrators.
