What is an international arbitration centre?

International arbitration is similar to domestic court litigation, but instead of taking place before a South African court, it takes place before private adjudicators called arbitrators. International arbitration is normally used to resolve disputes between companies or individuals in different countries. One advantage of international arbitration is that disputes are normally resolved more swiftly than traditional court litigation processes. An international arbitration centre is a space where arbitration can take place. Combining high-tech communications technology and adequate space and facilities for hearings, mediations, and depositions.
