  •  Azab Alaziz Alhashemi    


This study addresses the impact of international arbitration centers on traditional Arab dispute resolution methods, which are deeply rooted in cultural and religious values. Despite the growing popularity of arbitration centers worldwide, their effects on Arab societies remain inadequately explored. Through a comparative analysis of select Arab arbitration cases, the present study has examined the adverse consequences arising from international arbitration centers. Key factors contributing to these negative effects, including cultural and language barriers, as well as the financial costs associated with arbitration have been investigated. The research objectives encompass understanding the clash between international arbitration and traditional methods and proposing strategies for better integration and coexistence. Drawing on the findings, the present study offers practical recommendations to enhance the collaboration between international arbitration centers and local communities. The study underscored the importance of upholding cultural diversity and advocated for the preservation of community-specific dispute-resolution mechanisms. By shedding light on these complexities, this study has contributed to theoretical advancements and practical solutions for understanding the arbitration’s influence on Arab societies and promoting harmonious coalescence between global arbitration practices and traditional values.
