This chapter takes a look at the theoretical framework of dispute resolutions. It argues that dispute resolution cannot be fully separated from a complete understanding of the theoretical base of dispute resolution. It notes that the commercial disputes within the telecom sector are partly due to the competing interests of its members. Commercial disputes can hamper development, especially if these are left unresolved for long periods of time. In order to prevent this from happening, fast and efficient methods of dispute resolution are being formed. The discussion also looks at various dispute resolution systems, which are able to give a better understanding of the available options. It is possible that the different types of regulatory institutions and dispute resolution emerged from these systems.

Keywords: theoretical framework; theoretical base; commercial disputes; telecom sector; competing interests; dispute resolution systems; regulatory institutions
