Book description

This book provides a comprehensive and comparative examination of private international law in Commonwealth Africa. It offers an unrivalled breadth of coverage in its examination of the law in Botswana, the Gambia, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Namibia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. The book is clearly and logically structured - it is organised around broad themes or issues, with country reports and accompanied by detailed commentaries. Drawing on nearly 1500 cases decided by courts in these countries and numerous national statutes, this book covers the four cornerstones of private international law: jurisdiction, choice of law, foreign judgements and arbitral awards enforcement, and international civil procedure. The author also provides an extensive bibliography of the literature on African private international law. Scholars and practitioners alike will find Private International Law in Commonwealth Africa invaluable and illuminating.

Reviews

'[This] book is a remarkable tour de force, which will be of use to all practitioners who need to engage with private international law in these countries, and will surely inspire debate on the development and reform of this law in Africa and elsewhere in the world.'

Gordon R. Woodmana Source: Commonwealth Law Bulletin

'… this is a valuable book. It will no doubt be of interest to practitioners and academics in Africa and beyond. Through its clear and authoritative exposition of the existing principles of law in the countries which it covers, the book enriches the reader’s knowledge of a hitherto much-neglected area of private international law. In this regard, Private International Law in Commonwealth Africa has the potential to kick-start a debate on a wide range of issues within and outside Africa. For his endeavours in laying the foundations for that debate, Dr Oppong’s work deserves much credit.'
