Money in Africa: Monetary and financial decolonisation in Africa
Monetary and fiscal processes are important elements in state building and in managing international economic relations for emerging economies and new states. These processes were also important during the transition to constitutional independence in Africa.
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.
