Does Intellectual Property Law Work for Africa?

Available IP statistics strongly suggest that intellectual property law does not translate to significant innovation outputs for Africa. This is because of a lack of critical and strategic investments and infrastructure by several African governments and the private sector. Professor Enyinna Sodienye Nwauche will discuss a number of cases to demonstrate how the right policies, infrastructure, and investment can make intellectual property law work for Africa.

Enyinna Sodienye Nwauche is a professor of law at the Nelson Mandela School of Law, University of Fort Hare, East London. He previously taught at Rhodes University, Grahamstown; the University of Botswana; and the Rivers State University of Nigeria. He is a rated NRF scholar and has held fellowship and visiting positions in the United States, Canada, Germany, United Kingdom, and Austria. He was Chair of the Coordinating Committee of the African Network of Constitutional Lawyers (ANCL).
