Disputes always arise between parties to a contract. Resolving a dispute through court litigation is not always a choice of the parties. While referring to courts might be a desired option in some cases but not every time when a dispute arises particularly when it is a government contract.
Afghanistan Center for Commercial Dispute Resolution (“ACDR”) is committed to promotion and development of Alternative Dispute Resolution (“ADR”) in Afghanistan. Considering the importance of effective ADR mechanisms for Afghan business community, one of main objectives of ACDR is to institutionalize ADR in Afghanistan.
