Survey on Costs & Disputes Funding in Africa Results
The Survey on Costs and Disputes Funding in Africa is an initiative of the Africa Arbitration Academy (AAA), published with generous support from the African Legal Support Facility (ALSF). It is the first Africa-wide survey focusing on costs of resolving disputes, the financing of claims, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on litigation and arbitration costs and measures to drive cost-efficiency in African disputes. Based on responses from 25 African jurisdictions, the survey provides useful insights from sole practitioners, associates, partners of law firms, in-house counsel, academics, third-party funders, representatives of arbitral institutions and other users of litigation and arbitration in Africa.
The Survey collates views from a diverse pool of participants including sole practitioners, associates and partners of law firms, in-house counsel, academics, third-party funders, representatives of arbitral institutions and other users of arbitration in Africa. It explores and evaluates the cost of disputes in Africa and identifies the different initiatives or models that may be introduced by governments and institutions to make dispute resolution more affordable and accessible.
The Survey is available in English, French, Portuguese and Arabic.
