Arbitrability and restrictions on arbitration
2.1
How is it determined whether a dispute is arbitrable in your jurisdiction?
 
Ghana
Section 1 of the Alternative Dispute Resolution Act states that matters relating to the following are not arbitrable:

  • the national and public interest – a term which is not defined in the act;
  • the environment;
  • the enforcement and interpretation of the Constitution; or
  • any other matter that by law cannot be settled by alternative dispute resolution.

Section 72 of the Courts Act 459/1993 also provides that all civil matters are subject to settlement out of court, including settlement through arbitration.
