Promoting Foreign Judgments undertakes a comparative analysis of how South African and Nigerian courts can promote the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments considering both African countries as paradigms of their respective legal traditions. In many African countries, litigants experience significant uncertainty in their attempts to enforce foreign judgments. Disputes arise in the course of international trade, and contracting parties seek to secure effective outcomes. Drawing on the experiences of the United Kingdom and the United States (vis-à-vis efforts to attain an effective global legal framework on foreign judgments), this book argues that there is a need for a fundamental change in approach or underlying assumptions, with a view to facilitating the free movement of foreign judgments in a globalised world.
