The objective of this conference is to shed light on a range of different historical cross-experiences. It will provide a comparative analysis of the Portuguese, French, British, Belgian, Spanish, Italian and German cases of colonial transition in monetary and financial matters. As a highlight several Central Bank Governors of European and African institutions will discuss monetary policy in Africa today: between sovereignty and international cooperation.
