Created in 2001, the Centre for Arbitration and Mediation of Madagascar (CAMM), supports enterprises to manage their conflicts, determine the best way to quickly solve them, and ensure the security of their investments and continuity of their business. In order integrate the CAMM into the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Antananarivo (CCIA), Madagascar asked for advice from partners. The country was supported by UNDP, CMAP (Centre de Médiation et d’Arbitrage de Paris), CAMCO (Centre d’Arbitrage, de Médiation et de Conciliation de Ouagadougou), São Tomé and  Principe and "Groupements Patronaux Malgaches". The goal of that solution was mainly to prepare CCIA and private sector’s CEOs to the new model of the arbitration center and the role they will play in its functioning.

A delegation composed of CCIA members and a private sector representative were sent to Paris and Ouagadougou in 2011.

The CAMM was integrated into the CCIA in 2012, based on the French and Burkinabe models This new structure gives better tools to Malagasy companies for commercial dispute resolution. It also goes beyond its arbitration duties, by promoting legal training to make local companies more legally secure.


  • The CAMM continues to operate without outside support
  • The role of CCIA has been reinforced.
  • Links between CCIA and the private sector have been increased.
