This chapter identifies major categories of situations, events and institutions in which or through which questions of international investment law have been dealt with before African courts. The chapter is selective in nature and aims at showing tendencies instead of exhaustivity. A noteworthy tendency that becomes apparent through the chapter’s analysis is that the prevailing narrative of bypassing African courts and tribunals seems declining in importance as an increasing number of national investment law instruments foresee African judicial and arbitral institutions for the settlement of investment disputes.
Keywords: African national courts, national investment law, investment arbitration, apartheid, land reform, OHADA, ECOWAS, EAC
