Arbitration in Africa is gaining traction in recent years, as the market is steadily changing with the rise of more arbitral centres across the continent. Governments are now recognising that having arbitral centres gives international investors more comfort on the political and legal stability for their investments.

Joining CNBC Africa to discuss the state of arbitration in Africa are Olufunke Adekoya, Vice President, ICC Court of Arbitration, Yemi Candide-Johnson, President, Lagos Court of Arbitration and Wahida Parker, Independent Internationally Accredited Mediator.
