Areas of Focus

The MIAC Conference 2014 will provide dynamic and critical engagement with the fundamental elements of international commercial arbitration, with an emphasis on challenges to awards and enforcement of awards. This focus will allow in-depth and comprehensive discussion of these subjects, both in principle and practice.

The specific issues which will be discussed by each panel are as follows:

  • Two panels on international commercial arbitration, will engage in a critical examination of challenges to international arbitration awards, and enforcement of awards, in Africa;
  • Two panel-led discussions, similar to those held regularly by the LCIA at its Tylney Hall conferences; and
  • Two workshops in the form of mock hearings of tribunals considering applications to challenge an arbitral award, and to enforce an award.
