The Strathmore Extractives Industry Centre (SEIC) is currently coordinating efforts towards achieving the first book on Mineral Law and Governance in Africa for Kenya as part of a collaborative project between academics from across Africa to create a series of books to be published by Juta Law Publishers, dedicated to mineral law and governance in Africa.
The aim of each of these publications is to analyse the relationship between the law, governance and the promotion of socio-economic development in Sub-Saharan Africa in as far as it pertains to minerals. SEIC will be the Consulting Editor.
On 28th February–2nd March 2018, SEIC hosted the annual MLiA Colloquium V at Strathmore Law School, attended by academics from across Africa and the Juta Law Publishers. This provided an opportunity for individual country teams to provide feedback on the research and work done since the previous Mineral Law in Africa workshop; and to strengthen existing research networks around law and governance of minerals in Africa. The colloquium also gave postgraduate students from across the continent a chance to present and get feedback on their work.
