ADR Center in Bahrain Marks Many "Firsts" by ProQuest


When the Bahrain Chamber for Dispute Resolution-AAA (BCDR-AAA) formally opened its doors last January, it marked many "firsts." The result of a partnership between the AAA and Bahrain's Ministry of Justice and Islamic Affairs, the center is the first organization of its kind to provide a formal system of ADR services in Bahrain. Bahrain's unique ADR law establishes the Persian Gulf island nation as a neutral venue for multinational companies who choose to resolve their disputes through international arbitration. Under the law, cases with over 500,000 Bahraini dinar in claims that involve an international party or a party licensed by the Central Bank of Bahrain will be directed to the BCDR-AAA for binding arbitration instead of the domestic courts.
