In this second instalment of the section on African Practice in International Law we continue with our exposition of some of the most significant developments in international economic law on the African continent. From regional trade matters, such as the launching of trade under the African Continental Free Trade Agreement, to investment dispute resolution involving African governments, as well as urgent imperatives surrounding intellectual property law. The section updates readers on some of the issues that were captured in the last issue, and which are ongoing. It further gives an overview of significant milestones for Africa over the past twelve months.
