This course looks into interrelated implementation, legal, regulatory and policy design aspects of the AfCFTA and African regional trade regimes. It contextualizes these issues within negotiation and implementation capacities of AU members. It goes beyond classical structure of trade agreements, which classifies subject matter into sectors (i.e. trade in good, trade in services, investment facilitation etc.) and identifies synergies and key issues that are normally treated as grey areas among these subject matters.
The course further conceptualizes interrelationships of the various intra and inter-agreement technical subject matter that are key and necessary to have economically big and small AU Members to competently negotiate, express and define their interests and beneficially implement the negotiated outcomes. By the same token, it takes evidence-based approach in assessing beneficial implementation viability of the AfCFTA and African trade regimes.
