In this highly informative and very useful book, thirty-three local experts
describe the ongoing process of adopting and adapting modern techniques of
dispute resolution for economic and commercial matters in Algeria, Egypt,
Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Syria, Tunisia, Turkey, and the West Bank
and Gaza Strip. Each chapter illustrates multiple techniques, including court
processes as well as arbitration and mediation processes, against the backdrop
of economic and legislative changes that have occurred region-wide since the
late twentieth century.
The country-by-country presentations are especially valuable for their
emphasis on how local ADR practices deal with, or are affected by, such
factors as the following:
• civil procedure codes
• international conventions
• international enforcement of awards
• qualifications of arbitrators and mediators
• rules of local, regional, and international ADR institutions
• involvement of the judiciary
• cultural aspects
• regional and international trade agreements
