Arbitration Institutions in Arab Countries

There is a lack of sufficient information in English language about institutional arbitration operating in the Arabic countries. Some countries have been recognized for having long established arbitration centers, such as: the Cairo Regional Centre for International Commercial Arbitration (the "CRCICA") established in 1979 under the auspices of the Asian African Legal Consultative Organization ("AALCO"). However, there are many unknown arbitration centers scattered in various Arab countries operating under the auspice of the Chambers of Commerce or established by law firms and practitioners. Therefore, it was difficult to find published information about the majority of arbitration centers in Arabic countries. 


Moreover, we have noticed that some of the major arbitration centres do not have proper links to their website address or that they have published very limited information about arbitration rules and practice in their jurisdiction.


We would appreciate your help, if you have information that you would like to share about institutional arbitration in the Arabic countries please do not hesitate to send that information to us and, subject to our approval, we will be pleased to publish that on the Arab International Arbitrators website.
