International Economic Law and African Development discusses international perspectives on African law and economic development in the light of broader globalisation imperatives.
It is the third in what can loosely be described as a series on Africa and gobalisation by the Mandela Institute (the first two being Laurence Boulle (ed) Globalisation and Governance (Siber Ink 2011) and Emmanuel T Laryea, Nokuhle Madolo and Franziska Sucker (eds) International Economic Law - Voices of Africa (Siber Ink 2012)).
The conversation on law and African economies continues in this book, in the light of Africa's increasingly sophisticated participation in all facets of the contemporary world. It offers a collection of essays from Africans, whether living on the continent or abroad, complemented by the writings of empathetic non-Africans writing from an African perspective. They are metaphorically rooted in African soil not only in terms of subject-matter but also in terms of the perspectives they provide. African contributions to the debates on global themes may presage greater African engagement in the global political economy in the future.
The Mandela Institute is a centre within the School of Law at the University of the Witwatersrand and undertakes teaching, research and capacity development in different areas with particular reference to international trade, investment law and global finance.
