International economic law is an emerging area of teaching, research, and practice in Africa. The area, which is a sub-field of international law, is concerned with the regulation of economic relations between states as well as the conduct of private parties involved in cross-border economic and business transactions.

The area includes subjects such as international investment law, international trade law, intellectual property law, international financial law, and international commercial arbitration.

In a bid to encourage research and publication in international economic law, the organisers of this event deem it fit to provide a platform to shape critical and context-driven analysis among faculty members in teaching and researching in the field in Africa. The webinar will feature a discussion of the following thematic areas, among others.

  • Publishing in Reputable Journals and Avoiding Predatory/Fishing journals.
  • Should I collaborate as an early researcher?
  • Conferences and workshop participation/Abstract writing.
  • How do I choose my research topics?
  • How do I develop my research expertise?
  • How do I source for research materials?
  •  How do I plan my publications?
  • How do I address feedback and reviewers’ comments? 
  • How do I balance my academic work with other commitments?
