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.

Innovative Mechanisms for the Exchange of New Knowledge
Intellectual property (IP) is an increasingly important site of social, political, and economic struggle. An emerging body of scholarship has begun to consider how IP reflects and reinforces inequalities along lines of race, gender, sexual orientation, class, and disability. This body of scholarship examines how knowledge production regimes contribute to local and global economic disparities, dispossession of oppressed peoples, and hierarchies of power.
