RATIONALE AND PURPOSE OF THE CONFERENCE: Economic development in Africa has been one of the most important issues on the global agenda. A number of development and law reform projects have been undertaken, but many African countries are yet to achieve successful economic development. The conference examines the development paths that have been taken in Africa over the years, discusses the challenges and explores new approaches to law and development that may yield better development results for Africa.

Gas: we breathe it, we burn it, we weaponise it, we control it. Whether banned, regulated or free-flowing, gas is our immediate environment, connecting us, keeping us warm, keeping us cool, creeping through the cracks. Explosive or sedative, it facilitates killing and curing alike. Gas leaks, escapes, and traverses boundaries, including legal boundaries. Certain gases are subject to international law, but even the most regulated gases may escape, or be unleashed.
The Kenan Institute for Ethics and the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions, in coordination with faculty at the Duke Department of Economics and the Nicholas School of the Environment, invite research paper submissions for presentation at a workshop on new directions in the analysis of environmental justice at Duke University August 23 and 24.
