Foley Hoag LLP partner Tafadzwa Pasipanodya will be a featured speaker at the First Annual Conference on International Arbitration of the African Arbitration Association (AfAA). The conference, being held in Kigali, Rwanda on April 4, 2019, was developed to address Africa’s achievements in international arbitration to date and consider what more can be done to increase participation of Africans and African arbitration institutions in international arbitration.

Pasipanodya's panel, “The African Arbitration Association is Here: Now What?,” will discuss the significance of the establishment of the African Arbitration Association and recommend actions that the Association should consider taking in order to fulfill its objectives.

As a member of Foley Hoag’s International Litigation and Arbitration Department, Pasipanodya represents sovereign States in contentious and advisory matters concerning international law. Her practice is focused on advising States in investor-State arbitrations and State-to-State disputes concerning mineral resources, environmental harm, territorial and maritime claims, as well as human rights.
