A new blog specializing on international economic law matters as they relate to Africa has recently been created. AfronomicsLaw will complement the growing and important voice of scholars interested in international economic law with a focus on Africa. It will also offer policy makers, practitioners and others interested in these issues a forum to insightfully engage and reflect on developments on international economic law more contemporaneously.

The Editors are James T. Gathii (Loyola Chicago University Law School), Olabisi D. Akinkugbe (Schulich School of Law, Dalhousie University), and Nthope Mapefane (University of Pretoria) both copied on this email.

The blog hosts featured symposiums on topical themes and books. It will also highlight relevant news and forthcoming events. The Editors encourage submissions of an analytical and reflective nature. Individual and Symposium contributions should be sent to
Ideally, submissions should not exceed 1000 words without prior arrangement with the blog editors. Footnotes can be used sparingly, but for readability hyperlinks will work better.
