Practical Insights into Commercial Arbitration in the Abraham Accords Economy

The Abraham Accords, a set of normalization agreements entered into in late 2020 by Israel, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain, Sudan, and Morocco, are reshaping the economy of the Middle East. Commercial disputes will inevitably arise in connection with the new economic ties emerging from the Abraham Accords and are expected to overwhelmingly be resolved through international arbitration. This program will provide an introduction to the dispute-resolution issues that will define this emerging space with a focus on the characteristics of the national legal systems of the Abraham Accords nations, including the relevant arbitration laws, procedures, and institutional rules. The discussion will illuminate important characteristics of international arbitration that will be important to any lawyer expecting to advise clients or represent parties to disputes in this new environment. There will be a 60-minute panel discussion followed by 30 minutes of Q & A. We encourage participants to submit questions to the moderator via the Zoom chat. To ensure the smoothest facilitation, the moderator will select questions and invite the panelists to respond.
