The Centre awarded the Arbitral Institution of the Year Award, 2022
The Nairobi Centre for International Arbitration (NCIA) was on 5th November 2022 awarded the Arbitral Institution of the Year Award during the 3rd African Arbitration Association (AfAA) Conference held in Accra, Ghana from 3rd to 5th November 2022.
The AfAA Conference themed, “Africanisation of International Dispute Resolution” brought together eminent practitioners in public and private international law, investment law, regional and international commercial arbitration, and Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR).
The AfAA, a non-profit private sector-led association launched in 2018, is Africa’s promotional body for international arbitration and other forms of international dispute resolution. Its members include leading African international arbitration and ADR practitioners as well as African arbitration institutions and initiatives. Its role is to support the continuing development of international arbitration in Africa and to improve and recognize the international prominence of its members and their activities in international arbitration and international dispute resolution. The AfAA also serves as a source of information on arbitrating in Africa. The Centre is a member institution of AfAA.
The Arbitral Institution of the Year award is awarded to an arbitral institution that is adjudged to have been the stand-out arbitral institution headquartered in Africa having regard to its work and organization. The award also considers the initiatives and improvements undertaken, user experience, demonstrated achievements in environmental, social and governance metrics and any other relevant factor which has distinguished that institution in the context of ADR in Africa and beyond.
The AfAA Awards 2022 sought to highlight the achievements of African jurisdictions, arbitration practitioners, and Institutions and their significant contributions to the development of arbitration in Africa, thus driving the effort to make Africa a preferred destination for business and arbitration activities.
