About Afghanistan Center for Commercial Dispute Resolution:
The Afghanistan Center for Commercial Dispute Resolution has formally inaugurated on 30 June 2015 to provide dispute resolution services to the local and international businesses by the Afghanistan Chamber of Commerce and Industries. The center’s mission is to support attracting and maintaining local and international business and investment in the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan through offering alternative dispute resolution (ADR) services that are cost-effective, transparent, and accountable.
In introducing any new concept to a country or culture, organizations must be mindful to not ignore traditional mechanisms, this is especially true when introducing concepts of justice and dispute resolution. Afghanistan Center for Commercial Dispute Resolution (ACDR) seeks to firmly establish mediation and arbitration as sustainable services in Afghanistan. The ACDR is the first center of its kind in Afghanistan which provides commercial mediation and arbitration services to businesses. The ACDR will provide a place for both domestic and international companies to resolve their disputes outside of the court system. Although, Alternative Dispute Resolution, in the western sense is a relatively new concept to Afghanistan, the ideas behind these mechanisms are not new to Afghanistan.
