The MENA Diploma is intended for those who are seeking to act as international arbitrators and/or professionals who could be representing parties in arbitration situations.

We have been running a UK based Diploma in Arbitration for many years and following on that success, launched a Diploma in International Arbitration for South Africa at the end of 2014.

We are actively recruiting for all types of dispute resolvers and expert witnesses to join the RICS Global Panel of Dispute Resolvers & Expert Witnesses (MENA). Arbitration is a popular dispute resolution mechanism in this region and we are keen to have more built environment specialist arbitrators on the panel.
