The Middle Eastern and African Arbitration Review 2020 recaps the recent past and provides insight on what these developments may mean, from the pen of pre-eminent practitioners who work regularly in the region.

Across 15 chapters, and 97 pages, and written by 34 authors, this edition covers Angola, Egypt, Lebanon, Mozambique, Nigeria, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the UAE, and has overviews on energy arbitration, mining arbitration, the likely outcome of the investment talks within the AfCFTA project, and developments within OHADA.

Among the nuggets to be found:

  • an analysis of the likely landing point on FET within AfCFTA;
  • a breakdown of the various ways in which ‘localisation’ is coming to energy arbitration in the region;
  • anecdotal evidence that Chinese mining investors are turning to BITs;
  • news of the first successful enforcement of a foreign arbitral award through the ADGM courts; and
  • Nigeria’s courts recently dealt with an attempted challenge to a well-known Swiss arbitrator.
