Call for Papers – AAIL 2015 Annual Conference,  Libreville – Gabon (29-31 August 2015)

The African Association of International Law (AAIL) is pleased to announce its 2015 annual conference entitled: International Economic Law and Development in Africa: Challenges and Opportunities.

Deadline for submissions of abstracts: 15 March 2015

The 2015 AAIL conference will explore the law in relation to economic development in Africa. In 2014 Africa maintained a phenomenal average growth of 5%, with a number of countries emerging as middle income countries. Yet inclusive growth and unequal wealth distribution remains a continent-wide challenge, while political fragility and conflict threaten to crumble even the most stable economies in the region. As the world begins to craft the post-2015 development agenda we ask:

What legal frameworks are needed to ensure a conducive environment for sustained economic growth?

How has international economic law (IEL) shaped the development agenda?

Can justice, the rule of law and good governance play a role in inclusive economic growth?

How effective have international and regional economic institutions been in promoting all aspects of development?

What is the current state of investment arbitration and investment security in Africa?

Are there correlations between economic growth and sustainable development of natural resources in Africa?

We invite papers which will tackle any of these questions or explore, from an African perspective, the developments, paradigms and issues that concern International Economic Law on the following topics:

Foreign and south-south investment in Africa;
Trade and trade facilitation;
The gap between the regulatory framework and the implementation of International trade rules in Africa; International finance and monetary policy; 
Dispute settlement;
Terrorism and its impact on Africa’s economic development;
Intellectual property rights and technology acquisition;
Energy and Power Africa;
Sustainable development Goals and the Post-2015 Agenda;
African economic integration in the context of regional economic communities;
International economic law and its role in development agendas;
The green economy and the impact of climate change on Africa economies;
The green economy and the impact of climate change on Africa economies;
New research, methodologies or innovations in the teaching of International Economic Law in African Universities.
