    Taking place on 17-19 June 2019 in Lagos, ICC’s annual Africa conference, held in English and French, is the key forum for understanding international commercial arbitration in Africa. This conference provides an indispensable update on developments in the region and is becoming the most important gathering for the African arbitration community. Not only does it offer a line-up of top-class speakers, topical discussions and relevant news, but also an excellent opportunity to network. The conference attracts more than 350 participants representing about 15 countries.

    Conference Overview :

    This year’s theme is ‘Government Contracting and Investment Disputes: Lessons for States and Investors‘. The conference will explore the full spectrum of government contracting from procurement and PPPs (public private partnerships), tender disputes, dispute mitigation in government contracts, investment arbitration and arbitrating with governments in African centres. In 2018, the Kenya government successfully defended 2 high profile investment arbitrations: an ICC arbitration relating to the power sector; and an ICSID arbitration in the mining sector. There is focus across the continent on investment in renewable energy, sustainable development, agriculture, healthcare, and education. How can governments and investors better contract? Disputes are expensive, even for the winner –can they be mitigated? Can damages be better assessed and recovered? Do African international arbitration centres and practitioners have a place in investment arbitration? We will answer these questions at EAIAC 2019.
