When by fortuitous coincidence the Conveners of the Mid-Atlantic Caribbean Alternative Dispute Resolution Institute (MACADRI) met in May 2014 at the historic and ground-breaking ICAMA (International Centre for Arbitration and Mediation, Abuja) conference hosted by our Patron in Abuja, a number of resolutions were concluded following the Abuja – Nassau Declaration.
