Abyei Arbitration

“After years of deadlock, the two main parties in Sudan’s north and south agreed to go to the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) in The Hague to resolve the Abyei dispute,” the BBC reported on June 22, 2008.


According to the Sudan Tribune on June 23, 2008, the Sudan National Congress Party and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement have “agreed to refer their dispute over the Abyei permanent boundaries to ‘final and binding arbitration under the Permanent Court of Arbitration Optional Rules’ for arbitrating disputes between two parties of which only one is a state,” and that “upon the signing of the Arbitration Agreement, the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) shall provide full registry services and administrative support to the Abyei Arbitration Tribunal and the Parties.”
