Political Economy of the Harmonisation of Business Law in Africa

  •  Rachael Ntongho    


This paper examines the current dynamics of regulatory reforms in Africa and its implication on the continent. It analyses the highly political struggle for regulatory dominance of business law in Africa and how this interacts with the preferences and power of select international actors. It illustrates that the struggle between Francophone and Anglo-Saxon sections of society for OHADA to reflect their ideological stance is having a negative effect on the harmonisation process.
