Workshop "Eastern African common legal space in economic law: State of the Art and future perspectives, with consideration of the European experience" vom 10.-11. August 2015 in Dares Salaam, TansaniaOhne Angabe

Projektfinanzierung: VolkswagenStiftung


Regional economic communities are of increasing relevance for the economic and social development of individual countries. Consensus among member states on economic policy is necessary for the success of a regional economic community and the achievement of its goals. The free movement of goods, services, persons and capital is a key aspect in reducing barriers to trade and other economic activities. A central instrument for achieving this goal is the harmonisation of law, as the creation of a common legal space in the field of economic law is decisive for the reduction of barriers to international trade within a regional community; it creates a conducive climate for investments from the region and into the region, and for the provision of new jobs; and it is therefore an important factor in economic growth and welfare. The Research Workshop focused on the harmonisation of private economic law, especially in the fields of commercial law, competition law, intellectual property law, labour law and private international law (with a special focus on choice of law in contracts, jurisdiction and enforcement of judgments). The papers presented explored the impact of the law of regional economic communities on the national laws, as well as obstacles that those laws pose to regional integration, with regard to the East African Community (EAC), other African regional economic communities, and the European Union (EU). The workshop brought together senior and junior legal scholars from Africa and Europe and provided an opportunity for exchange and mutual learning. Through this publication, the results of the workshop are made accessible to interested researchers both in Africa and Europe.
