Call for Papers: 'Africa 2013', University of Trento

Africa 2013 - Was There Something Missed in the Decolonization Process? The International Law Perspective.

Fifty years after the establishment of the OAU, we want to address the fundamental research question of whether and to what extent formal independence has released African States from patterns of dominance by former colonial powers, other States and Trans-national Corporations.

The Workshop will take place on 6-7 December 2013 at the University of Trento, Italy, and will be divided into four sessions: a) Use of Force; b) International Economic Law; d) International Criminal Justice and Human Rights; e) Circulation of Legal and Institutional Models.

On the first day Judge Abdulqawi Yusuf will be our keynote speaker and Paul Nugent of Edinburgh will very likely give an introduction under a historical perspective.
