Abstract

In 2018 the members of the African Union adopted the African Continental Free Trade Area Agreement (AfCFTA). This book examines the AfCFTA, dissecting its key provisions. It stresses the importance of the AfCFTA against increasing episodes of trade protection in Africa, and it theorizes on the role of the Treaty organs. The book also examines the importance of citizen participation for the success of the AfCFTA as well as exploring the role sub-state actors can play. Ultimately, the study adds to the understanding of the array of problems that are associated with regional trade in Africa and the role law plays in resolving these problems. It will be of importance to academics and students of international law, especially those with an interest in African trade law, as well as legal professionals and policy-makers.
